Stepchild you've had a hard way to go
How come your daddy run away your mama never did know
All you remember is becoming a step son to your mama's new man
And you got acquainted with the back of his hand
 Stepchild you say the man had a son
The son called him daddy but he told you to call him John
You say the legs on the breast of the chicken was gone
When the platter come around your way
And you had to chop cotton while your step brother played
 Stepchild when you were born
Your right foot was turned left with your left
And mercy had a way of taking off and leaving you by yourself  Stepchild muddy water got in your well

 Stepchild how come your laughing that way
 After doing the deed that you've done you better learn how to pray
 Stepchild you've got a weird sense of humor 
And you came close to gettin' away
But they caught you plantin' garlic on your step daddy's grave  Stepchild when you were born
