Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Cotton Jenny  Gordon Lightfoot

T[G]here's a house on a hill, by a [C]worn down weathered old [G]mill
In the vally [D]be-low where the river winds, there's no such thing as bad t[G]imes
And a soft, southern flame, oh C[C]otton Jenny's her n[G]ame
She wakes me [D]up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go r[G]ound


CHORUS:
   Wheels of love go a[C]round, .... love go a[G]round [G7]
   Love go a[A]round, ... a joyful so[D]und [D7]
   I ain't [G]got a penny for C[C]otton Jenny to s[D]pend, but then
   The wheels go a[G]round


When the new day be-gins, I go [C]down to the cotton [G]gin
And I make my t[D]ime worthwhile to them, Then I climb back up a-[G]gain
And she waits by the door, oh C[C]otton Jenny I'm s[G]ore
She rubs my f[D]eet while the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go a[G]round
In the hot, sickly south, when they [C]say "well shut my [G]mouth"
I can never be f[D]ree from the cotton grind, but I know I got what's [G]mine
A soft, southern flame, oh C[C]otton Jenny's her n[G]ame
She wakes me [D]up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go r[G]ound
