Going back, I'm going back to Arkansas
I'm going back, going back to Arkansas
I know I will be happy, me and my wife and Mother-in-Law
That's why I'm going back, I'm going back to Arkansas

Oh when my mother put on that old frying pan
And start to cook them old colored greens
You can smell them ham hocks boiling
If I tell you too good I ain't stalling
That's why I'm going back, yes I'm going back to Arkansas

I missed the train, I got a great mule to ride
I missed the train, I got a great mule to ride
He's standing at my gate, my buddy pulls by my side
That's why I'm going back, yes I'm going back to Arkansas

When I get home, I don't have to pay no rent
I raise my own meat and meals
You can hear them chickens crowing, you can hear them old cow mooing
That's why I'm going back, yes I'm going back to Arkansas

Going back, I'm going back to Arkansas
Yes I'm going back, going back to Arkansas
My Mother she cooks for the boss, That's my Daddy he whips his horse
That's why I'm going back, I'm going back to Arkansas
