Here are the lyrics straight from the mofro.net site:

Dirtfloorcracka

Looking for something to prove ⁄ Looking for something to say ⁄ We eat our grits and we don't mind sweet in our tea ⁄ ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Their TV taught them ⁄ Mercy for the Wise ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Call me dirt floor cracker ⁄ But them words just feel me with pride ⁄ ⁄ You seem so pleasant ⁄ You've got something to say ⁄ But them words you speak deep down ⁄ Loving to irritate ⁄ We're not that fooled by ya ⁄ This hard head ya see ⁄ You keep your money coming ⁄ We'll feed ya cheap cornbread and ⁄ Them grits keep flowing baby ⁄ Psy-collard greens and ⁄ My mama said hey boy ⁄ Listen to what they mean ⁄ ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Their TV taught them ⁄ Mercy for the Wise ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Call me dirt floor cracker ⁄ But them words just feel me with pride ⁄ ⁄ We got the soul but you ⁄ Don't want the feeling - ain't right ⁄ We go them moves but you ⁄ Decide to pull it tight ⁄ You think you got - but it ⁄ Its like the road you say ⁄ You about to move it 40 ⁄ We got the record playing ⁄ ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Their TV taught them ⁄ Mercy for the wise ⁄ All they've ever known ⁄ Call me dirt floor cracker ⁄ But them words just feel me with pride

No that's not it Sunny. Those are the lyrics for it but JJ says something right before the printed lyrics--like ibleedfla says:  _________________ , we need some of them collard greens, _______________ the whip, no southerner trip, dip,
...

These have never been on the lyrics from the website or the printed CD cover. I've wondered the same thing ever since it first came out.

Oh and ibf...wknds are slow, holiday wknds even slower. You may not see an answer for a few days; we're getting about 1/4 of the usual daily visitors to the site today and tomorrow probly will be one of the slowest days in months.

Upon listening to the DFC intro ALOT, i think it saying something about poetry and quips
 
________poetry, we need some of them collard greens, ________ quip, don't suffer the trip, dip
 
might have something to do with psy-collard greens part too.

I'll have to look up the references...JJ's been asked that many, many times, as you can imagine. He's responded in articles and in other places that I or someone'll have to dig up to give you the full depth. But in a nutshell it's a made up word that everbody used when he worked at the lumberyard. "Hey man, hand me that mofro." It has no significant meaning other than that. It's one of the classic band situations where he needed a name and came up with something top of mind.

He mentions that when he talks about putting his name in front 2-3 years back. He has said these are the songs about his life and family's life and they are his stories. Having all that signified by a meaningless word is something that began to bother him.
