on the river 
Sliding on by. 
Hard to believe, 
Wink of an eye.

Where'd you go, 
Baby Buffalo? 
What's become 
Of old Cotton Eyed Joe?
Hold up, lying
Lead off with the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Buckin' winged, and heel and toe
Hold me close for the Pecos Promenade
Big sign hangin' by the door
Sawdust
Choctaw Wridge
Today Billie Joe Macallister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge
Papa said to mama as he passed around the black eyed peas
Well Billie
Lead off with the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Buckin' winged and heel and toe
Hold me close for the Pecos Promenade

Big sign hangin' by the door
Sawdust
toe-tappin'
We'll be kickin' up our heels to the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Music and laughter, gonna raise the rafters
A little boot-slidin' across the floor
Do
Dance with the devil everywhere they go
Others of 'em cut a rug to the fiddle
Dance to the rhythm of the cotton eyed joe

Some they walk the straight
with a bow on his thumb and a fiddle in his hand
He tunes up the fiddle and he rosins up the bow
And he plays an old tune called "Cotton Eyed Joe
with a bow on his thumb and a fiddle in his hand
He tunes up the fiddle and he rosins up the bow
And he plays an old tune called "Cotton Eyed Joe
on his thumb
And a fiddle in his hand

He tunes up the fiddle and he rosins up the bow
And he plays an old tune called 'Cotton Eyed Joe'
And they dance all
ridge 
seems that billy joe macallister's jumped off the tallahatchee bridge. 

well papa said to mama as he passed around the black eyed peas 
billy
prepared for the weight of this ring
But we will get by
For the rest of our lives

So play the Cotton-Eyed Joe
For the folks don't you know
Keep the dogs in
Ridge"
"Today Billy Joe Mac Allister
Jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge"

Papa said to Mama as he passed
Around the black eyed peas
"Well, Billy Joe never
be Cotton-Eyed Joe

Put it flat on the floor with a four/four beat
Add Monsieur Oiseau

Tragedy, Celtic tragedy
I lost myself in London, Paris,
from Choctaw Ridge"
"Today Billie Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge"

And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the black-eyed peas
cashing in 
Take the Cadillac down to the Broken Spoke 
Do the ole two-step or cotton-eyed Joe 
Just like the south they're gonna rise again 

Believe
