Lyrics:
There # s a whole lotta people lookin # down their noses at me
# Cause I didn # t come from a wealthy family
There was ten of us livin # in a two room shack
On the banks of the river by the railroad track
We kept chickens in a pen in the back
And everybody said we was po # folks

My daddy was a farmer but all he ever raised was us
Dug a forty foot well, struck thirty six gallons of dust
The Salvation Army give us clothes to wear
A man from the county came to cut our hair
We lived next door to a millionaire
But we wasn # t nothin # # cept po # folks

We was po # folks livin # in a rich folks # world
We sure was a hungry bunch
If the wolf had ever come to our front door
He # d have had brought a picnic lunch

My granddaddy # s pension was a dollar and thirty three cents
That was ten dollar less than the landlord wanted for rent
The landlord # s letters got nasty indeed
He wrote # Get out # but Pa couldn # t read
And we was too broke to even pay heed
But that # s how it is when you # re po # folks

We was po # folks livin # in a rich folks # world
We sure was a hungry bunch
If the wolf had ever come to our front door
He # d have had brought a picnic lunch

But we had something in our house money can # t buy
Kept us warm in the winter, cool when the sun was high
For whenever we didn # t have food enough
And the howlin # winds would get pretty rough
We patched the cracks and set the table with love

# Cause that # s what you do when you # re po # folks
And we wasn # t nothin # but po # folks
My mom and my dad was po # folks
My brother and my sister was po # folks
My dog and my cat was po # folks
