Heading Back to Arkansas

print

Pretty girls that treat you nice
Headin’ back to Arkansas
Kiss ’em once they’ll kiss you twice
Headin’ back to Arkansas
Had a place to sleep at night
Headin’ back to Arkansas
I had shoes that fit me right
Headin’ back to Arkansas

    Cross the mountains like a crow
    Where I’ll fly she’d never know
    Where my frozen heart will thaw
    Headin’ back to Arkansas
    Headin’ back to Arkansas

Goin down the railroad track
Got a biscuit in my pack
You can hear a mountain song
You’ll go dancin’ all night long

Peaches growin on the trees
Melons taller than your knees
Singin’ while you do your chores
Neach the oak and sycamore
