Cornbread and Butterbeans

Cornbread and Butterbeans Carolina Chocolate Drops

[Chorus:]

Cornbread and butterbeans and you across the table*

Eatin’ beans and makin’ love as long as I am able

Growin’ corn and cotton too and when the day is over

Ride the mule and cut the fool and love again all over

Goodbye don’t you cry I’m goin’ to Louisiana

Buy some corn and a big fat hog and marry Suzianna

Same song ding dong I’ll take a trip to China

Cornbread and butterbeans then back to North Carolina

[Repeat Chorus:]

[Lead:]

Wearin’ shoes and drinking booze it goes against the Bible

A necktie will make you die and cause you lots of trouble

Women yeah that’s the end of a terrible beginning

[Repeat Chorus:]

I can’t read and don’t care and education’s awful

Raising heck and writin’ checks it ought to be unlawful

Silk clothes and frilly hose is just a waste of money

Come with me and stay with me and say you

ll be my honey

[Repeat Chorus:]

[Lead:]

[Repeat Chorus:]
