(Neckbones vocal vrs1-3)

I was born in Mississippi
Raised in Tennessee
I was born in Mississippi
An I's raised in Tennessee
But there wimens in Missour-a
Picks on over me

My babes have something
I don't know what it is
My babes have something
I don't know what it is
Ev'rytime she moves
Baby, now I can't be still

Said the peaches I'm loving
Don't grow on no trees
Lord, that peaches I'm loving
Don't grow on no trees
Lord, it's somewhere baby
Just above yo' knees

Well now, you said it's peaches you love
They don't grow on no trees
There another peaches you love
They'll grow on no tree
(Where they grow at?)
I b'lieve now you say
Peaches, now grow just above the knees

Well now, b'lieve I'll go
Back down in Tennessee
Right now I b'lieve I'll go
Back down in Tennessee
Well baby, that where the peaches grow, honey
Now just above the knee

Hoo-umm-umm
Hoo-well-well, so sweet
Hoo-hoo-umm
Babe, they're so smooth
Well-well-well, now
Hoo-hoo-ooo-ooo
In your grove

Peaches, growin' on no tree
Like the big wild peaches
Don't grow on no tree
Well, I b'lieve to my soul, now
'At's down in Tennessee.

(piano and guitar to end)
