"Cotton Eyed Joe" as written by Tommy Duncan and Bob Wills....
Do you remember Long time ago
Daddy worked a man called Cotton Eyed Joe
Daddy worked a man called Cotton Eyed Joe
I could have been married long time ago

If it hadn't 'a been for Cotton Eyed Joe
If it hadn't 'a been for Cotton Eyed Joe
Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow

Wouldn't play nothin' but Cotton Eyed Joe
Wouldn't play nothin' but Cotton Eyed Joe
Play it fast or play it slow

Didn't play nothing but Cotton Eyed Joe
Didn't play nothing but Cotton Eyed Joe
Where do you come from where do you go
Where do you come from Cotton Eyed Joe
Where do you come from Cotton Eyed Joe

Come for to see you come for to sing
Come for to show you my diamond ring
Come for to show you my diamond ring
