When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle
In them ol' cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them ol' cotton fields back home
When them cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton
In them ol' cotton fields back home
It was down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them ol' cotton fields back home
