Lyrics:

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama rocked me in the cradle
In them old cottonfields back home

It was out in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texicana
In them old cottonfields back home

Well, When them cottonballs get run
You can't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home

It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile of Mexicana
In them old cottonfields back home

Ta.. ta.. ta...
In them old cottonfields back home

Well, When them cottonballs get run
You can't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home

It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texicana
In them old cottonfields back home

In them old cottonfields back home
In them old cottonfields back home
