[Verse 1] Well I've been on the road For a long time Met a lot of women Had to leave them all behind Because I want to go back To the land I love Where Magnolia smells sweet And white cotton is warm [Chorus] Take me on back Back to the country Take me on down, down Greenwood Mississippi [Verse 2] Old farmer John He lives down the road Works in the fields Carrying a heavy load He don't have to worry About a thing Because evryday now You can hear him sing [Chorus]
