Cotton Fields
Written by Huddie Leadbetter



Chords


Song

1.

When I was just a little bitty baby,
My mama would rock me in the cradle,
In them old cotton fields back home,
When I was just a little bitty baby,
My mama would rock me in the cradle,
In them old cotton fields back home.

chorus:

Oh when those cotton bolls get rotten,
You can't pick very much cotton,
In them old cotton fields back home,
It was down in Louisiana,
Just about a mile from Texarkana,
In them old cotton fields back home.

2.

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.

3.

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.
