Down Here In The South (©2011 T. Land & T. Ellis)

She worked for years in a field of weeds

They said mam your job is make em all green

Don’t worry honey,we’ll ship you up north

With your mamma and your baby, just stay on course

 

When you got nothing

A dollars worth a lot

When you got nothing

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Down here in the South

 

Her husbands doing time for just speaking out his mind

He believed in liberty, said it’d turn out all fine

He taught her how to read and pledge allegiance to the flag

Now for a buck, she’d give you the one in her bag

 

When you got nothing

A dollars worth a lot

When you got nothing

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Down here in the South

 

Two cops coming down hard on top of tenth

Find an old worn out woman on the brink of death

Strangled with an old flag on the last bus stop

All dirty and crumbled and tied in a knot

 

When you got nothing

A dollars worth a lot

When you got nothing

Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.

Down here in the South

Down here in the South

Down here in the South
