"Cornbread" as written by Sean Stockham and Zachary Lopez....
Maybe I'm a cornbread straight motherfucker
Maybe I'm a worn out featherless hen
Maybe I'm a cornbread straight motherfucker
Maybe I'm a worn out featherless hen

Or maybe I'm just picking seed from the wrong one and

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you? No?

La dada da da-da da (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
La dada da da-da da (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Maybe I'm a one horse town motherfucker
Maybe I'm used up worn out man
Maybe I'm a one horse town motherfucker
Maybe I'm used up worn out man

Or maybe I'm just barking up the wrong tree and

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

You spend all your life
Dicking at, dicking away at the wrong life
You're a traitor! (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
You're a traitor! (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

You spend all your time
Dicking at, dicking away at the wrong life
You're a traitor! (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
You're a traitor! (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Maybe I'm a spineless
Weak-kneed
Yellow bellied he she

Maybe I'm an undercover deadbeat
Suffering cold feet

Maybe I'm a spineless
Weak-kneed
Yellow bellied he she

Maybe I'm an undercover deadbeat
Suffering cold feet

Or maybe I'm just shooting with the wrong gun and

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

Oh

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

Oh

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

Oh

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

Oh

I'm a cornbread
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?
Can I meet you?

No

    General CommentI don't know, but it suites the end of the album ridiculously well. I will say that "hand" should instead be "featherless hen"

    This entire album speaks mainly to keep battling against strife and I believe this song would work into that idea. This song in particular reminds me of Flea from the RHCP singing his lil diddy "Pea" off of One Hot Minute. I really like how blunt they are when they sing it.
    So what is a corn-bred/cornbread? I would say a redneck hick that don't give a sh#t!

    General CommentI think this is about an argument/verbal fight with someone close ( a wife/ gf, a parent) who is either very angry with him or looks down on him. This other person is the one leveling all the insults (cornbread straight MFer, worn out featherless hen, one horse town MFer, used up worn out man, spinless yellow bellied he she, undercover deadbeat). He is expressing doubt ( either verbally or to himself) about any hope of reconciliation at the end of each verse ("Or maybe I'm just[:] picking seed from the wrong one, barking up the wrong tree, shooting with the wrong gun"). The bridge ( "you spend all your time dicking at . . . the wrong life/ you're a traitor!") is him lashing out in retaliation to the insults. He manages to recompose himself and get back to his main question "Can I meet you?" The final answer is of course "No." This leads us to conclude that his suspicions that he was " barking up the wrong tree" are correct.
