Intro: F

Verse:

F
You may talk about the ladies 
The ladies of your own
Ab                                      F
These boweevils they’ll rub you up at home 
                        C
They all looking for a home
                         F
They all looking for a home
F
The first time I seen a bo weevil
He was sitting on the stair
Ab
The next time I seen a boweevil 
                          F
He had his own family there
                         C
They all looking for a home
                         F
They all looking for a home

They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home

The farmer he took the boweevil
And put him on the ice
The boweevil said to the farmer
You treat me mighty nice
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home

Alright
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home

Alright now this next song 
Is about myself and when im done I hope 
You’ll all sing along with me on hes
Looking for a home

I said if anybody asks you people
You sang you this song
You tell em its jackie white
Hes just been here and gone
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home

Alright
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home
They all looking for a home

The song is actually called BOLL Weevil, no Bo weevil. There are a few verses missing from the song. TWS perform this song live many times, usually at the end of a set. In between the farmer and the verse about himself there are a few verses:

Well the old lady said to the old man
I'm tryin my real ol(?) best
but keep these boll weevils
out of my brand new cotton dress
and it's full of holes
it's full of holes

The young man said to the old lady
what do you think of that?
these boll weevils
got into my brand new stetson hat
and it's full of holes

it's full of holes
it's full of holes
it's full of holes
it's full of holes

The song does vary, as it's played more live and Jack does like to add things here and there to keep things interesting.

The song's full title is "De Ballit of de Boll Weevil". But you did get the music right.

What you have as an Ab is actually a Bb
