Hi.
Few years ago Mollie O'Brien recorded on "Tell the True" the song "Bollweevil holler".
I'm searching for the lyrics of this song.
Can somebody help me?

Thanks a lot!

Mario

Yup - here they are:
BOLLWEEVIL HOLLER - Mollie O'Brien

First I seen the Bollweevil
Sitting on that square
Next time I seen him
He had his family there
He had his family there
He had his family there
Next time I seen him
He had his family there

Tell me bollweevil where is your native home
Way down in the bottom
Among the cotton & the corn
Among the cotton & the corn
Among the cotton & the corn
way down in the bottom
Among the cotton & the corn

Tell me boll weevil
Where did you get your great long bill
Way down in texas
Among the western hills
Among the western hills
Among the western hills
Way out in texas
Among the western hills

Bollweevil hey
Bollweevil everywhere
They done ate up all the cotton and corn
Above the new ground square
Above the new ground square
Above the new ground square
They done ate up all the cotton and corn
Above the new ground square

The farmer asked the merchant
For some meat and meal
T'aint nothin doin old man
BollWeevil's in your field
BollWeevil's in your field
BollWeevil's in your field
T'aint nothin doin old man
BollWeevil's in your field

Tell me boll weevil
What makes your head so red
Been workin on your cotton
Till I'm almost dead
Till I'm almost dead
Till I'm almost dead
I've been workin on your cotton
Till I'm almost dead

I just got the lyrics by transcribing the way she sings it on Prairie Home Companion on the net.
