THE COTTON SONG (COTTON FIELDS)
(Ledbetter, traditional)
THE CHASS McDEVITT SKIFFLE GROUP (Chic/Oriole, 1957)

When I was a little bitty baby
My mommie would rock me in the craddle
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home

Now, when them cotton balls get rotten
We don't pick very much cotton
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

When I was just sixteen
I went on down to New Orleans
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

Oh, when them cotton balls get rotten
We don't pick very much cotton
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

I went on down to Arkansas
They said, once you come here boy
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

Oh, when them cotton balls get rotten
We don't pick very much cotton
In them old cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

You may think it's very funny
But we didn't make much money
In them old cotton fields at home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home

Oh, when them cotton balls get rotten
We don't pick very much cotton
In them old cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Not a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields at home
