Chorus  
D     A7 
Song, song of the south 
G                              D 
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth 
D     A7 
Gone, gone with the wind 
G                          D 
There ain't nobody looking back again 

D                       A7 
Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch 
G                           D     
We all picked cotton but we never got rich 
D                      A7 
Daddy was a veteran, a Southern Democrat he said 
G                                D 
They oughta  get the rich men to vote like that 

Chorus  
D     A7 
Song, song of the south 
G                              D 
Sweet potato pie and I hush my mouth 
D     A7 
Gone, gone with the wind 
G                          D 
There ain't nobody looking back again 


D                          A7 
When I was eighteen well I ate my fill 
G                              D 
We lived on the garden and the cow?s good will. 
D                      A7     
Summers were hot and winters were dry and 
G                D 
Momma was old at thirty-five. 

Chorus  
D     A7 
Song, song of the south 
G                              D 
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth 
D     A7 
Gone, gone with the wind 
G                          D 
There ain't nobody looking back again 

D                          A7 
Well somebody told us that Wall Street had fell                              
        G                      D    
We were so damned poor that we couldn't even tell 
D                        A7 
Cotton was short and the weeds was tall 
G                        D      
Mr. Roosevelt was  gonna save us all  

Chorus  
D                A7 
You sing a song, song of the south 
G                    D 
Sweet potato pie and I hush my mouth 
D               A7 
I?m gone, now,  gone with the wind 
G                          D 
There ain't nobody looking back again 

D                       A7  
Well momma got sick and daddy got down     
G                               D                    
The county took the farm and we moved to town 
D                        A7 
Daddy got a job with the TVA 
G                                      D 
We bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet

D     A7 
Gone, gone with the wind 
G                          D 
There ain't nobody looking back again
