This song is by Ida Cox and appears on the compilation album Ida Cox Vol. 3 1925-1927 (1995).

Takes a southern woman to sing this southern song
Takes a southern woman to sing this southern song
Lord I'm worried now but I won't be worried long

When I was downtown I wouldn't take no one's advice
When I was downtown I wouldn't take no one's advice
But I ain't going to let that same bee sting me twice

Because I'm going back where the weather suits my clothes
Because I'm going back where the weather suits my clothes
Down where there ain't no snow and the chilly winds never blow

I don't want no northerner no northern black or brown
I don't want no northerner no northern black or brown
Southern men will stick by you when the northern men can't be found

You ever been south you know just what I mean
You ever been south you know just what I mean
Southern men are all the same from Kentucky to New Orleans

I'm going back south where I can get my hambone boiled
I'm going back south where I can get my hambone boiled
These northern men are about to let my poor hambone spoil
