You go to Banglin', tell my boys
You go to Banglin', tell my boys
What times I'm havin' up in Illinois
In Illinois, up in Illinois
Verse 2
When I gin2 my little cotton I'm going to sell my seed
When I gin my little cotton and sell my seed
I'm gonna give my baby, everything she need
Everything she need, ev'rything she need
I'm gonna give my baby everything she need

You know, I been in Texas and I been in Arkansas

But I never had a good time till I got to Illinois
Up in Illinois, up in Illinois
