Mississippi Girls
They will take you out on a live-oak hill
And there they will leave you much against your will.
They will leave you on the prairie, starve you on the
plains, For that is the way with the Texians, For that is the way with the Texians.
When they go to preaching let me tell you how they
dress; Just an old black shirt without any vest, Just an old straw hat more brim than crown And an old sock leg that they wear the winter
round,. And an old sock leg that they wear the winter
round.
For your wedding supper, there'll be beef and corn-bread; There it is to eat when the ceremony's said. And when you go to milk you'll milk into a gourd; And set it in the corner and cover it with a board; Some gets little and some gets none, For that is the way with the Texians, For that is the way with the Texians.
