When I git through wid de Farmer,

He'll have no home,
He'll have no home."
Boll Weevil say to de Preacher, "You better close yo' chu'ch do', When I git through wid de Farmer, He cain't pay de Preacher no mo', Won't have no home, Won't have no home."
De Merchant got half de cotton, De Boll Weevil got de res'j Didn't leave de nigger's wife But one old cotton dress. And it's full of holes, Oh, it's full of holes.

Dey gone at las',
Oh, dey gone at las'.
Ef anybody axes you
Who wuz it writ dis song,
