[[MC blathering]]




[[verse i]]

C
She was a hot-shit singer in a low-rent dive

C                             (G)
Lookin' like she wanna eat a man alive

C
Legs get to kickin' in a worn-out shoe

C                  (G)           C
Kemba's got the cabbage moth blues

C
Laundry in Los Angeles and old St. Lou(is)

C                        (G)
Left Carolina with a load or two

C
Down in Kentucky got them hanging on the line

C                (G)    C
Mama was dressed so fine





[[chorus]]

F
Tell Kentucky how your turnip greens grow

C
Tell California everything you know

C                                                    (G)        C
Tell New York, tell Tennessee, come to Carolina your drink's on me





[[verse ii]]

C
There's too much chicken in the hen house now

C                      (G) 
Hens stay in, roosters stay out

C
See that red chicken sittin' on an egg

C                                 (G)       C
Fox caught the rooster and the rooster got dead

C
Got the water rolling in a pot of beans

C                              (G)
Had to keep the cabbage moth off the greens

C
Put the hot pepper right on the leaf

C                                           (G)          C
You' better wash them off good 'fore you serve them to me



[[chorus]]

F
Tell Kentucky how your turnip greens grow

C
Tell California everything you know

C                                                    (G)        C
Tell New York, tell Tennessee, come to Carolina your drink's on me





[[bridge]]

F
It was a whiskey and a whiskey and a whiskey and a whiskey....

F
...and a whiskey and a whiskey and a whiskey while the music did play

C
I hope my mama didn't float away

C                         (G)         G          G7!
Because I heard that the Cumberland was out of the banks





[[chorus x2]]

F
Tell Kentucky how your turnip greens grow

C
Tell California everything you know

C                                                    (G)        C
Tell New York, tell Tennessee, come to Carolina your drink's on me





F
Tell Kentucky how your turnip greens grow

C
Tell California everything you know

C                                                    (G)        C
Tell New York, tell Tennessee, come to Carolina your drink's on me


C                          G  G!     F
