lyrics

Think I’ll head on up to Hungry Mother
Starve there with her
Kneel at the water
Drink it down

Catch a worm
Then I’ll come down
Only way to lose them pounds
Get a pill from the vet
Then I’ll be fine

Then I’ll head on down to Pigeon Forge
My guts are empty
Now I’m the starving
I’m the poor

But I got plenty
Of wares in store
From my Chinese Brother
Korean Born
That Jesus shit from foreign shores
Yeah I’m coming down

Ain’t no drought gonna
Dry them wellsprings
Ain’t no dearth of
Empty vessels

Find them bouffants
Pluck them purse strings
Gonna sell some
Golden cow shit
Pile it high as them old smokies

When I walk my chains rattle
When I smile my teeth shine
Yeah I know there’s a better day coming
But the Lord told me to make this one mine

Then go on back to Hungry Mother
Starve there with
Kneel at the water
Drink it down
