(Intro riff, Bass and Guitar1)
Some of you all never been down South too much...
I' gonna tell you a little story, so you'll understand where I'm talking about
Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods and the fields,
and it looks something like a turnip green.
Everybody calls it Polk salad. Now that's Polk salad.
Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenings to pick a mess of it...
Carry it home and cook it for supper, 'cause that's about all they had to eat,
But they did all right.

E
Down in Louisiana
E
Where the alligators grow so mean
E
Lived a girl that I swear to the world
E
Made the alligators look tame

Polk salad Annie
                 E
'Gators got your granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
        G                       A           E
For the mama was working on the chain-gang
E
What a mean, vicious woman

E
Everyday before suppertime
E
She'd go down by the truck patch
E
And pick her a mess of Polk salad
E
And carry it home in a tote sack

[nc]       A
Polk salad Annie
                E
'Gators got you granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
           G                       A             E
'Cause the mama was working on the chain-gang
E
Whoo, how wretched, dispiteful, straight-razor totin' woman,
E
Lord have mercy.

E
Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
Yeah, you know what, yeah, yeah

E
But daddy was a lazy and a no-count
E
Claimed he had a bad back
E
All her brothers were fit for
E
Was stealing watermelons out of my truck

[nc]                A
For once Polk salad Annie
                 E
'Gators got your granny
     G                  A
Everybody said it was a shame
        G                       A             E
For the mama was working on the chain-gang

E
Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
You know what meets a meal mention
E
You sock a little
E
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah

(Intro riff Bass and Guitar 1)

E
Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon
E
Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon

E
Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
You know what meets a meal mention
E
Sock a little Polk salad to him
E
You know what meets a meal mention

About the artist behind Polk Salad Annie:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
