INTRO

Now, I'm goin' down South, I'm gon' stay until winter gone
Now, I'm goin' down South, I'm gon' stay until winter gone
Then, when winter gone, then maybe I will go back home

And I can't stay in the North, you know I ain't got sufficient clothes
You know, I can't live in the North, and I ain't got sufficient clothes (Spoken: Oh yes, but they sell clothes up there, you know that)
You know, when the wind get to blown', Sonny Boy, you know, I'm even scared to go outdoors

You know, I was settin' and wonderin', I look out, boys, with tears all in my eyes
You know, I was settin' and wonderin', I look out, with tears all in my eyes (Spoken: Oh, I know some of your peoples must have died, or somethin' or other, you know?)
You know, I want to get outdoors so bad, but Sonny Boy, you know I'm scared that I would die

SOLO (Spoken: Play it now. . . yes, my Lord)

You know, it's so cold up North, the birds, they can not hardly fly
It's so cold up North, the birds, they can not hardly fly
But every time I step outdoors, the wind whisks with the water out of my eyes
