“Cornbread” for Mike Gregory, wherever he is…

I saw a post over on the Banjo Hangout a day or so ago in the “Off Topic” forum, i.e., ‘not about banjo’, and decided to respond… I like writing songs and poetic verse, so here’s another one! Since I can’t post over there anymore, I’m posting it here. If you happen to run into mike over there, let him know he’s got a ‘cornbread’ suggestion over here! Thanks… Tom


 “Cornbread”by Tom Arri – 6/21/2019

G                                       C          G
Cornbread, cornbread on my plate…
(G)                                                 A7       D
They ain’t no cornbread what I ain’t ate!
G                                           C           G
Drippin’ with butter and honey, too…
G                                        D        G
Cornbread, cornbread, I love you!

G                                             C          G
When I was little, I’d turn up my nose…
(G)                                                 A7        D
You’d have to beat me with a rubber hose…
G                                        C           G
My dad sure did, now I see the light…
G                                      D        G
I dream of cornbread every night!

G                                       C                   G
Cut into squares in the cornbread pan…
(G)                A7                D
Now I am a cornbread man…
G                                                 C                G
My dog likes cornbread, the cow goes ‘Moo!”…
G                                 D           G
My pet ground hog likes it, too…

G                                                       C        G
Don’t say I didn’t warn you the other day…
(G)                                      A7           D
If you’ve got cornbread on your plate…
G                                 C         G
When you look the other way…
G                                             D        G
I’ll grab what’s yours and run a-way…

G                                                     C            G
Mamma made cornbread and granny, too…
(G)                                                A7                  D
Sometimes we’d have it with home made stew…
G                                      C                     G
Home made stew, yes, home made stew…
G                                                             D                G
Washin’ down the cornbread with Mountain Dew!

G                                        C              G
I puff on a home made corn cob pipe…
(G)                                          A7         D
If I have some cornbread, I won’t gripe…
G                                   C         G
Old log cabin, settin’ in the hills…
G                                      D             G
Dew’s in the jug, don’t let none spill!

G                               C                 G
Corn cob pipe and Mountain Dew…
(G)                   A7                    D
Overalls and brown boots, too…
G                                   C          G
Big straw hat what’s on my head…
G                                           D                       G
I shore love home made, buttered corn bread!
