ARKANSAS (Damon Black) The Wilburn Brothers Also recorded by : Terry Melcher; The Osborne Brothers; Rhythm Pigs; Don Walser; The Whitstein Brothers. Oh, the bram' bush took the cabin I was born in And the browry claimed the fields I used to plow There's a yearnin' in my heart to be going To that forty acre patch got sewed in sprouts Arkansas, are your rivers still flowin' Is your cotton growin', white as snow Are the squirrels still a barkin' Up on old Crody's Ridge Has the girl I been sparkin' Gone and burned another bridge Arkansas -Instrumental- I have known the troubles I was born to know I have wanted things A poor man's born to want And in all my dreams and mem'ries I go runnin' Through the fields of Arkansas From which I sprung Arkansas, are your rivers still flowin' Is your cotton growin', white as snow Do the young men still piddle With the thought of growin' rich And slowly turn to old folks Sittin' whittle'in on a stick Arkansas -Instrumental- Arkansas (Contributed & Transcribed by Cooks & Carlene - December 2003) --
