The hillbilly says he can smell a snake a mile away,

And I don’t know about that,

But I can smell the hillbilly,

Who said he can smell a snake,

Though maybe not that far,

They say “you-uns” instead of “ya’ll” around the Buffalo River,

But the rest of the Ozark hillbillies,

Say “ya’ll” like most everybody else,

A fancy lady walks straight and tall,
