We got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson ever since the fire went out
I'm goin' to Jackson, gonna mess around
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson, look out Jackson town

Well, go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself
Yeah, go to Jackson, go comb your hair
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson, see if I care

Well when I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow
All them women gonna make me teach 'em what they don't know how
I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat
'Cos I'm goin' to Jackson, 'Goodbye' that's all she wrote

But they'll laugh at you in Jackson and I'll be dancin' on a pony keg
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound
With your tail tucked between your legs
Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my jaypan fan

Well now, we got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson ever since the fire went out
I'm goin' to Jackson and that's a fact
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back
Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout'
