Written by:Traditional

Let me tell ya a story about a boll weevil

 

Now some of you may not know

 

But a boll weevil is an insect

 

And he's found mostly where cotton grows

 

Now where he comes from hm nobody really knows

 

But this is way the the story goes

 

The farmer said to the boll weevil

 

I see you're on the square

 

Boll weevil said to the farmer

 

Say yep my whole darn family's here

 

Gonna have a home

 

Gonna have a home

 

The farmer said to the boll weevil

 

Say why do you pick my farm

 

The weevil just laughed at the farmer 'n' said

 

We ain't gonna do ya much harm

 

We are loving the home

 

And the boll weevil spotted a lightning bug

 

He said hey I'd like to make a trade with you

 

But ya see if I was a lightning bug

 

I'd search the whole night through

 

Sudden but home

 

I've be with you home

 

And the boll weevil called the farmer 'n' he said

 

Ya better sell your old machines

 

'Cause when I'm through with your cotton

 

Heh you can't even buy gasoline

 

I'm gonna treat me your home

 

Gotta have a home

 

And the boll weevil said to the farmer said farmer

 

I'd like to wish you well

 

Farmer said to the boll weevil

 

Yeah an' I wish that you were in home

 

Looking for a home

 

Looking for a home

 

Ahh you have a home all right you have a home

 

 

A real hot home ahhh
