SOLO

When you come to my house, come down behind the jail, I got a sign on my door, "Barbecue For Sale"
REFRAIN: I'm talkin' 'bout my barbecue, only thing I crave
And that good-doin' meat gon' carry me to my grave

I'm sellin' it cheap, 'cause I got good stuff, and if you try one time, you can't get enough
REFRAIN: I'm talkin' 'bout barbecue, only thing I sell
And if you want my meat, you can come to my house at twelve

SOLO

Now some like it hot, some like it cold, some take it any way it's sold
REFRAIN: I'm talkin' 'bout barbecue, only thing I crave
And that good-doin' meat, goin' to take me to my grave

Some people wants it, some people don't, if you buy my barbecue it just won't don't-don't-don't
REFRAIN: Talkin' 'bout barbecue, only thing I sell
And if you want my meat, you've got to come to my house at twelve

Some people wants to know, the regular price, fifty-five cents, you can get some twice
REFRAIN: And I'm talkin' 'bout my barbecue, only thing I sell
And you can get my meat, any night at twelve
