 Down in Louisiana
 E
 Where the alligators grow so mean
 E
 Lived a girl that I swear to the world
 E
 Made the alligators look tame

(NC) A
Polk salad Annie
 E
'Gators got your granny
 GA
Everybody said it was a shame
 GAE
Cause her mama was working on the chain-gang  
 E
 What a mean, vicious woman

 E
 Everyday before suppertime
 E
 She'd go down by the truck patch
 E
 And pick her a mess of Polk salad
 E
 And carry it home in a tote sack

(nc) A
Polk salad Annie
 E
'Gators got you granny
 GA
Everybody said it was a shame
 GAE
'Cause her mama was working on the chain-gang    
 E
 Whoo, how wretched, dispiteful, straight-razor totin' woman,
 E
 Lord have mercy.

 E
 Sock a little Polk salad to me
 E
  You know I need me a mess

 E
 Her daddy was a lazy and a no-count
 E
 Claimed he had a bad back
 E
 All her brothers were fit for
 E
 Was stealing watermelons out of my truck patch

(nc) A
For once Polk salad Annie
 E
'Gators got your granny
 GA
Everybody said it was a shame
 GAE
Cause her mama was working on the chain-gang    

 E
 Sock a little Polk salad to him
 E
 You know I need me a mess
 E
 You sock a little
 E
 Hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah

(Intro riff Bass and Guitar 1)

 E
 Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon
 E
 Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon

 E
 Sock a little Polk salad to me
 E
 You know I need me a mess
 E
 Sock a little Polk salad to me
 E
 You know I need never a mess
 E
 Chinc, chinc, chinc, chin, ling, ling ling
