Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle

Allemande left your corner, turn your partner right
Allemande left and weave that ring
It was down in Louisiana, just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) star thru and square thru 3
Find your corner for a left swing thru
Girls run left, you bend the line
Dixie style from there
The boys cross run and then recycle
Swing your corner, promenade her back home
In them old cotton fields back home


FIGURE   

The heads (sides) you promenade, travel halfway around
On the other side dixie style
The head (side) boys trade and then extend to a left hand wave
Left swing thru tonight
The girls cross run, boys run
California twirl and all promenade
In them old cotton fields back home


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle
In them old cotton fields back home

Allemande left and weave that ring
It was down in Louisiana, just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home


TAG

Allemande left and swing
In them old cotton fields back home

Cotton Fields Lyrics ID: 525

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle
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.

Oh, when them 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.

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.

Oh, when them 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.

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle
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.

In them old cotton fields back home.

(Beach Boys lyrics included these stanzas)

Let me tell you now, well got me in a fix
I caught a nail in my tire doing lickety splits
I had to walk a long, long way to town
Came upon a nice old man, well he had a hat on
Wait a minute, mister, can you give me some directions?
I gonna want to be right off for home

Don't care if them cotton balls get rotten
When I got you baby, who needs cotton?
In them old cotton fields back home
Brother only one thing more that's gonna warm you
A summer's day out in California
It's gonna be those cotton fields back home

It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
Give me them cotton fields
(It was down in Louisiana)
Let me hear it for the cotton fields
(Just about a mile from Texarkana)
You know that there's just no place like home

Well boy, it sure feels good to breathe the air back home
You shoulda seen their faces when they seen how I'd grown
In them old cotton fields back home

Lyrics by Huddie Ledbetter.
Recorded by The Highwaymen; The Beach Boys (1968); Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969); many others.
