BE ALL RIGHT IN ARKANSAS (Gerry House / Billy Burns) Connie Smith - 1973 Born in Arkansas, Mississippi River at my backdoor If that blackland was so doggone rich, how come we were so poor Pick that cotton in daytime, pick guitar at night Daddy said, "Hon, keep on pickin', everthing gonna be all right" A'be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Arkansas) We'll have shoes for school, new clothes too And go to the fair next fall Be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Be all right in Arkansas) Everthing's gonna be all right in Arkansas Seemed like ev'ry year somethin' happened to the cotton crop If draught didn' wipe us out ,there were rains that never stopped Clouds came up that mornin', river came up that night Daddy said, "Pack up the pickup, hon, everthing gonna be all right" A'be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Arkansas) We'll have shoes for school, new clothes too And go to the fair next fall Be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Be all right in Arkansas) Everthing's gonna be all right in Arkansas Stayed away till the river went down and then we went back home That blackland was just black mud and all our cotton was gone Can't forget how daddy looked the day I saw him cry But through his tears he said, "Next year everthing gonna be all right" A'be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Arkansas) We'll have shoes for school, new clothes too And go to the fair next fall Be all right (Be all right) in Arkansas (Be all right in Arkansas) Everthing's gonna be all right in Arkansas (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
