Way down in Arkansas, way down in Arkansas
                            G   
That's where I've been, I'm going again
    A7          D
Way down in Arkansas

Oh I had a mule and he worked on fool
A7                D
Best mule you ever saw
I heard him say "I think I'll stay,
Way down in Arkansas

I had a wife a joy of my life
And I had a mother-in-law
I both laughed and cried the day they died
Way down in Arkansas

I was going down the road
Coming from Big Flat
I swear I saw a horse fly
Can you imagine

Now the strangest sight I ever saw
Was down in Little Rock
Right out there, in the open air,
I saw a boardwalk

We'll tell you things you won't believe
Before this song is sung
The Little Red River has a mouth
My wagon's got a tongue

[New Christy Minstrels]
