  • Now boll weevil just look like bove
    Come on with Mexico
    All the way through Texas I’m looking for a home
    Looking for a home

    Now the first time I see the boll weevil
    He’s sitting on the square
    Next time I see the boll weevil
    Got all his family there

    Looking for a home
    Looking for a home

    Now the farmer say to the weevil
    What makes your head so red?
    Then walking in his hot sun
    It’s a wonder I ain’t late

    Looking for a home
    Looking for a home

    Then the boll weevil told the farmer
    You better sell your machine
    Cause when I’m through with your cotton house
    You can even buy gasoline

    Gotta have a home
    Gonna be my home

    And the farmer take the boll weevil
    Put him into red hot sand
    The weevil said with mighty heart
    But I’ll take it like a man

    Be my home
    Gonna be my home

    And the farmer took the boll weevil
    Put him into red hot fire
    The weevil said to the farmer
    I must say I’m hot

    Be my home
    Gonna be my home

    Then the boll weevil say to the farmer
    I’d like to wish you well
    The farmer said to the boll weevil
    Wish you were in hell

    Looking for a home
    Looking for a home

    Now if anyone happens to ask it
    You that was had to sing his song
    Tell him a long legged guitar
    Pick it with a bad blue duckin long

    Looking for a home
    I ain’t got no home

    I ain’t got no home boss
    I ain’t got no home
