Doctor John Lyr Req/Add: Poor Howard / Green Corn (Leadbelly) (30) RE: Lyric req: poor howard 19 Dec 00

Who's been here since I've been gone?
Pretty little girl with a red dress on - or -
Great big man with a Derby on. (X2)

Poor Howard was his mother's poor boy...etc
Left me here to shout for joy

Green Corn
Green corn, come along Charlie (X2)
Green corn, green corn, come along Charlie(X2)

All I want in this creation, Pretty little wife and a big plantation.
Two little kids to call me poppa, One named Slop and the other named Gravy. (x2)
One's gonna flop and the other's gonna save me.

Green corn...

Wake snake day's a breaking, Peas's in the pot and howcakes a baking.

Green corn... Dr John
