"Cotton Fields" as written by and Huddie Ledbetter....
When I was a little baby, my mother rocked me in the cradle,
In them ole cotton fields back home
When I was a little baby, my mother rocked me in the cradle,
In them ole cotton fields back home

Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can't pick very much cotton,
In them ole cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
In them ole cotton fields back home

It may sound a little funny, but you didn't make very much money,
In them ole cotton fields back home
It may sound a little funny, but you didn't make very much money,
In them ole cotton fields back home

Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can't pick very much cotton,
In them ole cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
In them ole cotton fields back home

I was home in Arkansas, people ask me what you come here for,
In them ole cotton fields back home
I was home in Arkansas, people ask me what you come here for,
In them ole cotton fields back home

Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can't pick very much cotton,
In them ole cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
In them ole cotton fields back home

Oh when them cotton balls get rotten, you can't pick very much cotton,
In them ole cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana, just a mile from Texarkana,
In them ole cotton fields back home
