Story

TiTi (tye-tye) Road is the story of struggle along the Florida panhandle, where poverty runs deep and the first sweet flower of Spring is the TiTi. Its blossoms make the first honey along the wild Gulf Coast.

Lyrics

Yonder come a man with a pack on his back He been walkin' down the railroad track He's lookin' for food, he's gonna find the poor Down on the TiTi Road Seen a lot of people in this world before Goin' hungry, goin' door to door Eat a little possum or a squirrel or two Down on the TiTi Road Folks turn up their nose they ain't hungry enough Livin' off the land can sure be rough You'll eat anything you can get your hands on Down on the TiTi Road CHORUS: Down on the TiTi Road we're livin' Down on the TiTi Road Down on the TiTi Road we're strugglin' Down on the TiTi Road Livin' is hard in a tar-paper shack Wind blow through the front It blow through the back Rain drippin' off the roof and soakin' my clothes Down on the TiTi Road Patchin' holes in the walls with a paper sack Front porch broken and the roof is saggin' But it's better than nothin' in the Winter cold Down on the TiTi Road CHORUS: Bay come alive in the Summer sun Fish are jumpin' gonna catch me some Fry 'em up in a pan with a hushpuppy, too Down on the TiTi Road I got bee boxes down in the TiTi swamp Makin' sweet honey gonna get me some Pour it onto a biscuit loaded up butter Down on the TiTi Road CHORUS:
