OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade, go walking around the ring I said
Gonna get back home, swing your man around
Join hands make that ring
Circle to the left and hear me sing
Left allemande that corner, weave that ring
Oh when them cotton balls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton

Dosado, swing your lady, promenade
Promenade to Louisiana
About a mile from Texarkana
Them old cotton fields back home


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) right & left thru, turn that girl
Square thru them old cotton fields back home
Right & left thru the outside two
You turn that girl is all you do
Dosado make an ocean wave & then swing thru
Boys run to the right, wheel & deal, pass thru
Trade by, swing that corner, promenade
Promenade to Louisiana
About a mile from Texarkana
Them old cotton fields back home

Cotton Fields
 
 

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.
