You may talk about the latest,
F5
The latest of your home,
    Bb5
But these boll weevils
                       F5
They will rob you of a home
                       C5
They all lookin' for a home
                       F5
They all lookin' for a home

[Verse 2]

Well, the first time I seen a boll weevil
F5
He was sittin' on the square
         Bb5
The next time I seen a boll weevil
                        F5
He had his whole family there!
                        C5
They was lookin' for a home
                        F5   N.C.
They was lookin' for a home, alright Meg!

[Chorus 1]
                       Bb5
They was lookin' for a home
                       F5
They was lookin' for a home
                       C5
They was lookin' for a home
                       F5
They was lookin' for a home

Yeah!

[Verse 3]
F5
Well, the farmer, he took the boll weevil
F5
And put him in the sand
         Bb5
The boll weevil said to the farmer
                          F5
"You treat me just like a man
                  C5
And I will have a home
              F5
I will have a home"

[Verse 4]
F5
The old lady said to the old man
F5
"I'm tryin' my level best
        Bb5
To keep these boll weevils
                           F5
Out of my brand new cotton dress
                    C5
'Cause it's full of holes
                   F5
Yeah, it's full of holes

[Verse 5]
F5
The old man said to the old lady
F5
"What do you think of that?
      Bb5
These boll weevils
                              F5
Got into my brand new Stetson hat
                 C5
And it’s full of holes
                 F5
Ah, it’s full of holes, alright Meg!

[Chorus 2]
             Bb5
It's full of holes
                   F5
Yeah, it's full of holes
                   C5
Well, it's full of holes
                   F5     N.C.
Yeah, it's full of holes, alright!

[Speech; spoken by Jack in the linked show, with F5 played repeatedly throughout the "speech"]
Alright, this is the last verse of the last song of the night
Hey, hey
This verse is about myself, and I'm sorry about that
But it's ok, when I'm done singin' it I hope every one of you here
Will sing along with me and my sister on "He's lookin' for a home," ok?
Then you'll be happy, I'll be happy, and Lord knows Meg'll be happy

[Verse 6]

He's done been here and gone
                   C5
He's lookin' for a home
                   F5
He's lookin' for a home, hold on Meg
