Chor
Where do you come from? Where did you go?
Where do you come from? Cotton-eyed Joe?
Where do you come from? Cotton-eyed Joe?

Do you remember, a long time ago,
There was a man called Cotton-eyed Joe? x2

Old bull fiddle and a shoestring bow
Wouldn't play nothing but Cotton-eyed Joe. x2

Play it fast or play it slow,
Don't play nothing but Cotton-eyed Joe. x2
Could have married a long time ago,
If it hadn't been for Cotton-eyed Joe. x2

When I was a pretty little baby
My mama would rock me in my craddle
In them old cotton fields back home.

Now, when them old fields 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.
