It may sound a little bit funny, But we didn't make very much money, In them old cotton fields back home, It may sound a little big funny, But we didn't make very much money, (We could live on milk and honey), In them old cotton fields back home.

I was over in Arkansas, People ask me, "what you come here for?" In them old cotton fields back home, I was over in Arkansas, I told 'em, "to see what I could score", In them old cotton fields back home.
