Lyrics

I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
Down on Buley’s Farm

Old Buley work you from dawn to dusk
If he could, he’d work you more
Every dollar gone before it’s got
Cuz I owe it all to Buley’s store

I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
Down on Buley’s Farm

My daddy was a sharecropper
And his daddy ‘fore him too
We been workin’ on Buley Farm
Since Eighteen Hundred Two

I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
Down on Buley’s Farm

Now I’m heading down to New Orleans
Cuz I got this here guitar
Got a cousin say he’ll let me play
For tips in his whiskey bar

I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
I ain’t a-stayin’ down on the farm
Down on Buley’s Farm
