s that a cotton field or a river
is that a cotton field or a river

you know you can't swim in either one
but you can drown in a legacy of hatred
of everything said and done

are you a stranger or are you an angel
are you a stranger or are you an angel
did i know you in a past life
you're pretty kind to us white folks
then call the cops on our lunch
after you've been so polite

the cotton mouths down here bite pretty hard
and the freight trains ain't got no mercy

are you a ramblin' or are you a driftin'
are you a ramblin' or are you a driftin'
have you ever hit hard times
guess i'm ramblin' now cuz i never had to drift
far's that goes i'm doin' fine

is that your head or is that your heart
is that your head or is that your heart
i don't know what i'm doin' here or where i been
'cept dodgin' the semis so i can stay alive
to ask myself these questions all over again
