Elton John - "Cottonfields" lyrics

When I was a little bitty baby My Momma done rocked me in the cradle In them old cottonfields back home

It was back in Louisiana Just about a mile from Texarkana In them old cottonfields back home

Let me tell you now well I got me in a mess I caught a nail in my tire doing lickety splits I had to walk a long long way to town

Came along a nice old man Well he had a hammer Wait a minute mister, can you get me some direction I'm gonna wanna be right off for home

Oh let them cotton balls get rotten I got you baby, who needs cotton In them old cottonfields back home

Well it sure feels good to breathe the air back home You should have seen their faces when they seen how I'd grown In them old cotton fields back home
