GREEN CORN (Come Along Charlie)

All I need in this creation
Little bit o' wife an' a big plantation

All I need to make me happy
Two little kids to make me happy

One named Sop and the other named Gravy
One gonna sop it, the other gonna save it

Wake, snake, day's a-breakin'
Peas in the pot and hoe cake's a-bakin'

Lead Belly (one of his versions)
