Cotton Jenny

Gordon Lightfoot

 GCG
There's a house on a hill, by a worn down weathered old mill
 DG
In the vally be-low where the river winds, there's no such thing as bad times
 CG
And a soft, southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name
 DG
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go round

CHORUS:
 CGG7
   Wheels of love go around, .... love go around 
 ADD7
   Love go around, ... a joyful sound 
 GCD
   I ain't got a penny for Cotton Jenny to spend, but then
 G
   The wheels go around

 CG
When the new day be-gins, I go down to the cotton gin
 DG
And I make my time worthwhile to them, Then I climb back up a-gain
 CG
And she waits by the door, oh Cotton Jenny I'm sore
 DG
She rubs my feet while the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go around

 CG
In the hot, sickly south, when they say "well shut my mouth"
 DG
I can never be free from the cotton grind, but I know I got what's mine
 CG
A soft, southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name
 DG
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go round
