Some of you all never been down South too much...
I' gonna tell you a little story,
so you'll understand where I'm talking about
Down there we have a plant that
grows out in the woods and the fields,
and it looks something like a turnip green.
Everybody calls it Polk salad. Now that's Polk salad.
Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenings to pick a mess of it...
Carry it home and cook it for supper,
'cause that's about all they had to eat,
But they did all right.
