I had a little corn

I put it in a sack

I get to the mill

and had to bring it right back

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

What's the matter with this mill

Done broke down

I can't get no grinding

Tell me what's the matter with the mill

Some people said that a preacher won't steal

I caught one down in my corn field

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

I can't get no grinding

Tell me what's the matter with the mill

One had a bush and one had a peck

The other had the cornfield round his neck

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

I can't get no grinding

Tell me what's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

Done broke down

You don't know the way I feel

I got some more weevil in my corn field

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

What's the matter with the mill

Done broke down

I can't get no grinding

Tell me what's the matter with the mill
