POOR BOY LOOKIN' FOR A HOME (Melvin Schmidt) Glen Campbell & The Green River Boys - 1962 Well-a old Mister fox done found him a home Down in the ground so deep Well, the fox got a place to call his own He got a place to sleep Old Mister coon got a real fine home High in the hollow tree Well the coon's got a place he can call his own But there ain't no place for me I'm just a poor boy lookin' for a home Lookin' for a place to call my own Poor boy lookin' for a home Poor boy lookin' for a home (Instrumental Break) Well the boll weevil find him a cotton boll He move all his kin folk in He found a place that is mighty snug Down by the cotton gin Well the bee's got a home in the honey hive Honey in the honey comb Well, old Mister bee's gotta keep alive While the poor boy's lookin' for a home I'm just a poor boy lookin' for a home Lookin' for a place to call my own Poor boy lookin' for a home Poor boy lookin' for a home (Instrumental Break) Oh the catfish home is a muddy pond He just eat and swim Well, he don't cry when the crawdad's gone Tadpole's fine with him Crow's found a nest in a tree top tall He never pay no rent Well the poor boy's got him no home at all He ain't got a livin' cent I'm just a poor boy lookin' for a home Lookin' for a place to call my own Poor boy lookin' for a home Poor boy lookin' for a home (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen, Cookie, & Mel Priddle - January 2006)
