Way Down In Arkansas--Hambone Willie Newbern
C position, standard tuning

Way down yonder in old Arkansas, where you find the turkey in the straw
Can hear the roosters crowin' 'bout the break of day, old hen livin' in the new-born hay
That's where my Great Grandma first met up a-with my Great Grandpa
Well, they settled down together, how they loved each other, way down in Arkansas

Now, way down yonder in old Arkansas, where you find the turkey in the straw
Can hear the roosters crowin' 'bout the break of day, old hen a-layrin' in the new-born hay
There's where my Great Grandma first met up a-with my Great Grandpa
Well, they settled down together, how they jawed with each other, way down in Arkansas

I can hear the darky moanin' at the old barn door
Can see the ladies tippin' 'cross the kitchen floor
When you get your coffee it'll be 'fore day
See that turkey slippin' out through the hay

Now, way down yonder in Arkansas, where you find the turkey in the straw
Now, when you make your money, when you see your honey, way down in Arkansas

Way down yonder in Arkansas, where you find the turkey in the straw
Can hear the roosters crowin' 'bout the break of day, old turkey slippin' out the new-born hay
There's where my mother-'n'-law first met up with her brother-'n'-law
Well, we went around together, how we 'joyed each other, way down in Arkansas
