Far away from the interstate
Deep in Clayton county
Among sturdy cypress trees
And stores selling penny candy
That's the place I really love best
Even though there ain’t a Starbucks or Sonics yet

That’s cottonmouth, cottonmouth country
Where life is simple and free
And I like to say aloud what I care about
My home and faith and family
And I’m as proud as a snake curled around
The limb of a white oak tree
In cottonmouth country

Joey caught an eight pound catfish
And he's given it away
To Dwayne who lives out by the furnace trail
He lost his job yesterday
Sometimes we get in hot water
But we do our best to take care of each other

That’s cottonmouth, cottonmouth country
Where life is simple and free
And I like to say aloud what I care about
My home and faith and family
And I’m as proud as a snake curled around
The limb of a white oak tree
In cottonmouth country

I was baptized by Preacher Johnson
In a tea-colored river
And I found a little bit of heaven
In a canoe with Mary Lou
Lord, I want to live and die right here

That’s cottonmouth, cottonmouth country
Where life is simple and free
And I like to say aloud what I care about
My home and faith and family
And I’m as proud as a snake curled around
The limb of a white oak tree
In cottonmouth country
