Cotton Eyed Joe  Misc. Country and Western

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

[G]Cotton-Eyed Joe, [Em]Cotton-Eyed Joe
[G]Where did you come from, [D]where did you [G]go?
[G]Where did you come from, [Em]where did you go?
[G]Where did you come from, [D]Cotton-Eyed [G]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
