Intro: Un, deux, un, deux, trois, quatre!

Well, I was raised on cornbread and a lot of high hope
I been workin’ like a dog ever since I was five years old
Well, pickin’ on cotton and a pushin’ a plow
All day a hot sun just a beatin’ me down
I used to worry about them things
But I don’t think about it no more
I don’t think about it no more

Well, pokin’ round the garden just tryin’ to keep the bugs out, Lawd
Well, you know it’s kinda hard when your life depends on what you grow, whoa
Sweet potato, corn, tomatoes, grapes on the vine
Prayin’ for the rain so my roots don’t run dry
Well, I used to worry about them things
And now I get my food from the store
Now I get my food from the store
I don’t think about it no more
I don’t think about it no more
I don’t think about it no more, no, no
I don’t think about it no more, no, no

Well, most days now I sit around and drink on the front porch
A fifth of wine, my old hound, and a little bit of good smoke
Oh, chewing’ tobacco, soda crackers, coffee and pie
It’s the simple luxuries that keep me happy in life
I used to worry about material things
And I don’t think about it no more
I don’t think about it no more
I don’t think about it no, no more
