Cotton Eyed Joe

Misc. Country and Western

 Way back yonder a long time ago
 Daddy had a man called Cotton-Eyed Joe
 Blew into town on a travelin' show
 Nobody danced like the Cotton-Eyed Joe

 Cotton-Eyed Joe, Cotton-Eyed Joe
 Where did you come from, where did you go?
 Where did you come from, where did you go?
 Where did you come from, Cotton-Eyed Joe?

Verse 2:
Mama's at the window, Mama's at the door
She can't see nothin' but the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Daddy held the fiddle, I held the bow
An' we beat the hell out of Cotton-Eyed Joe

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:
Made himself a a fiddle, made himself a bow
Made a little tune called Cotton-Eyed Joe
Hadn't oughta been for Cotton-Eyed Joe
I'd a-been married a long time ago

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4:
Whenever there's a dance all the women want to go
And they all want to dance with the Cotton-Eyed Joe
Daddy won't say but I think he knows
Whatever happened to Cotton-Eyed Joe

Repeat Chorus to End
