Hungry mornin', no cracklin' bread & grits today
Got to keep movin' - bad luck on my trail -
Wouldn't take my mama's good advice
Give my life for her peas & rice
Ole Mama could cook chicken make
------your mouth run - (yes)
Ole Mama could cook chicken make
------your mouth run - (yes)
Daddy said son you betta leave there's
------thirteen mouths to feed - (oh me) -
Hungry mornin', no cracklin' bread & grits today
Hungry mornin', no cracklin' bread & grits today
Got to keep movin' - bad luck on my

Can still taste my mama's chicken stew
Bet my life that you want some
------too.
