Lyrics

I chopped wood

I carried water

I burned the wood

Just to boil the water

Threw in some collards,

And some fatback ham

Made up a little corn bread

In the frying pan

Fried up some okra

Made some black-eyed peas

Brewed about a gallon

Of sweet iced tea

Took it out to the front porch,

Sat in the swing

Closed my eyes, let the day go by,

And I listened to the mockingbird sing

 

*CHORUS*

*The mockingbird he's a funny looking bird

Just an ordinary grey

The mockingbird don't do much as a bird

He just sits around all day

The mockingbird ain't a pretty bird,

There's no bright colors in his wings

But everybody stops what they're doing

When he sing, sing, sings*

[BREAK]

 

Yellow sand, and bright red clay

Come together In a beautiful way

From the longleaf pines

To that flat, flat land

It looks like heaven from where I stand

It's where I was born

And where I was raised

I know the people

And I know their ways

From Pensacola

To the Florida Keys

You can close your eyes Let the day go by

And listen to the Mockingbird sing

*CHORUS*
