Eb
When I was a little bitty baby
              Ab              Eb
My mama would rock me in the cradle
                               Bb7
In them old cotton fields back home
       Eb
It was down in Louisiana
             Ab              Eb
Just about a mile from Texarkana
            Bb7                 Eb
In them old cotton fields back home


               Ab
Now, when them cotton bolls get rotten
          Eb
You can't pick very much cotton
                               Bb7
In them old cotton fields back home

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

I was home in Arkansas
People ask me what you come here for
In the old cotton fields back home
