CORNBREAD AND CHITLINGS
(Glen D. Hardin)
As recorded by the Keestone Family Singers, 1962.

CHORUS: Avez-vous un Baltimore, you all? Comme ci comme ša.
La la la la la la la la la la la la la.
Cornbread and chitlings, a jug of mountain dew.
Lots of rest in the {plaza press?} so what are you gonna do?

1. A young man goes to Paris as every young man should.
There's something in the air down there in east Texas that does a young man good.

2. Them Paris girls are pretty wild; if I ever get my way,
I'm gonna marry the one that waits on tables down there at the City Cafe.

3. An old man returns to Paris as every old man must,
And plays dominoes down at the filling station; his dreams have turned to dust.

[A note on YouTube says this song is a parody of the Kingston Trio's 1959 hit, "Raspberries, Strawberries" with the locale switched from Paris, France, to Paris, Texas.]
