Cotton-eyed Joe

Lyrics

Do You remember a long time ago
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe

I could have been married a long time ago
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe

Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe

Play it fast or play it slow,
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe

Don’t you remember a long time ago
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe

Where do you come? Where do you go
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe

Come for to see you, come for to sing
Come for to show you my diamond ring
Come for to show you my diamond ring
