Carolina Chocolate Drops - Cornbread And Butterbeans chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Simple song with simple chords in STANDARD TUNING.

Okay before the chords and lyrics there will be a simple way to play the
intro type thing that is actually a banjo.  THE CHORD STRUCTURES IN THE
TAB WILL NOT DISPLAY STRUMMING SO ITS EASY ON ME.

SINCE THERE ARE NO TABS FOR THIS BAND I MUST PROVIDE A LINK TO THEM SO
IT IS www.carolinachocolatedrops.com and THAT IS THEIR OFFICIAL WEBSITE

Chorus:
G                                            C
Cornbread and butterbeans and you across the table
D                                                 G
Eating them beans and making love as long as I am able
G                                               C
Growing corn and cotton too and when the day is over
D                                                 G
Ride the mule and cut the fool and love again all over

G                                        C
Goodbye don't you cry I'm going to Louisiana
D                                             G
Buy a coon dog and a big fat hog and marry Suzianna.
G                                       C
Same song ding dong I'll take a trip to China
D                                              G
Cornbread and butterbeans and back to North Carolina.

REPEAT CHORUS

G                                                 C
Wearin' shoes and drinkin' booze goes against the Bible.
D                                                   G
A necktie will make you die and cause you lots of trouble
G                                                 C
Streetcars and whiskey bars and kissing pretty women
D                                         G
Women yeah that's the end of a terrible beginning

REPEAT CHORUS

G                                              C
I can't read and don't care and education is awful
D                                                   G
Raisin' heck and writing checks it ought to be unlawful
G                                                 C
Silk hose and frilly clothes is just a waste of money
D                                                   G
Come with me and stay with me and say you'll be my honey

REPEAT CHORUS
