Some men were born in poverty some were born with wealth
I was born a lovin' man and I just can't help myself
The women have all made over this old boy ever since I was born
That's why these old Arkansas travelin' shoes are so well worn

I've made quite a name for myself the girls know who I am
I'm a natural actual real authentical Arkansas lovin' man yes I am
Now in every little town that I've been in the story is the same
The girls all keep on a hangin' around playin' them lovin' games

But sometimes I wish them women folks would leave this old boy alone
I've thought about catchin' that next Greyhound back to my Arkansas home
But there ain't no use in kiddin' myself I like the way I am
I'm a natural actual real authentical Arkansas lovin' man
