Washboard Sam – Good Old Cabbage Greens lyrics

(instrumental & sax)

I'm goin' back south
In New Orleans
Get myself some a-them
Cabbage greens

Ooh, them greens
Yes, them greens
Oh, them greens
They call them, cabbage greens

I like my cabbage
Like a horse likes grass
'Cause they
Is right in my class

Ooh, them greens
Yes, them greens
Oh, them greens
They call them, cabbage greens

'Beat it out, boy'

(instrumental & sax)

'I love my cabbage'

Give me cabbage
For my dinner
Cabbage, for my desert
Oh, when I don't get my cabbage
Boy, how it hurt!

Ooh, them greens
Yes, them greens
Oh, them greens
They call them, cabbage greens

(sax & instrumental)

My wife woke up at night
Hurts me in the side
Says, 'Get up here, daddy
I've got yo' cabbage, fried'

Ooh, them greens
Yes, them greens
Oh, them greens
They call them, cabbage greens

When you give me greens
An don't give me no meat
Woman, you know that's one thing
Knock me off my feet

Ooh, them greens
Yes, them greens
Oh, them greens
They call them, cabbage greens

(instrumental to end)

~
