High Cotton

Alabama

 A
  We didn't know the times were lean
 D
A- Round our home the grass was green
 AE
It  didn't seem like things were all that  bad
 A
 bet we walked a thousand miles
 D
  Chopin' cotton and pushin' plows
 AEA
And  learnin' how to  give it all we  had.

As life went on and years went by
I saw the light in daddy's eyes
And felt - the love in mama's hands
They kept us warm and kept us fed
Taught us how to look ahead
Now lookin' back, I think I understand.

Refrain:
 PA
  We Were Walkin' in  High Cotton
 D
Old times  there are not forgotten
 AE
Those  fertile fields are never far a- way
 PA
  We Were Walkin' in  High Cotton
 D
Old times  there are not forgotten
 AEA
Leavin'  home was the hardest  thing we ever  faced.

When Sunday morning rolled around
We dressed up in hand-me downs
Just in time, together with the church
Sometimes I think how long it's been
And how it impressed me then
It was the only day my daddy wouldn't work.
