Polk Salad Annie:Tony Joe White.
#8 in 1968.

#1.
E
Down in Louisiana, where the alligators grow so mean.

There lived a girl, that I swear to the world, 

made the alligators look tame.

CHORUS:
           A                 E
Polk salad Annie, polk salad Annie.
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame..
          G                             A
cause her Mama was working on the chain-gang.
E
A mean, vicious woman.

#2.
E
Everyday 'fore supper time, she'd go down by the truck patch.

And pick her a mess o' Polk salad, and carry it home 

in a tote-sack.

CHORUS:
           A                       E
Polk salad Annie..'gators got your Granny.
     G                  A                G
Everybody said it was a shame..cause her Mama was 
              A
workin on the chain-gang..
  E
a wretched, spiteful, straight-razor totin' woman.

Lord have mercy. 

(INTERLUDE:HARMONICA:)

#3.
E
Her daddy was lazy and no 'count..claimed he had a bad back.

All her brothers were fit for, was stealin' watermelons out 

of my truck patch.

CHORUS:
           A                           E
Polk salad Annie..the 'gators got your Granny.
     G                  A                G
Everybody said it was a shame..cause her Mama was 
               A           E
working on the chain-gang.

OUTRO:
E
Sock a little polk-salad to me..you know I need a mean

mess of it..(Fade.)


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
