Cornbread And 'Lasses And Sassafras Tea

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Sisters:
Come along girls, a listen to my noise
Don’t go marrying no Arkansas boy
Marry a fellow from Tennessee
Eat cornbread and ‘lasses and sassafras tea
Eat cornbread and ‘lasses and sassafras tea

Traveled all over this whole wide world
Eat a lot of cooking from a lot of pretty girls
There ain’t nothing like Tennessee
Eating cornbread and ‘lasses and sassafras tea
Eating cornbread and ‘lasses and sassafras tea

Grandpa Grump lived on a hill
He ain’t never died and I guess he never will
The neighbors all say he’s passed 93
The old man’s happy as he can be
Eating cornbread and ‘lasses and sassafras tea

Old Uncle Ned on his dying bed
They gathered all around and here’s what he said
My last request just let it be
Cornbread, molasses, sassafras tea
Cornbread, molasses, sassafras tea
