Cotton-Eyed Joe 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. CHORUS: 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? Mama's at the window Mama's at the door She can't see nothin' but the Cotton-eyed Joe Daddy held the fiddle, held the bow He beat the hell out of Cotton-eyed Joe Made himself a fiddle, Made himself a bow Made a little tune called the Cotton-Eyed Joe Hadn't oughta been For Cotton-eyed Joe I'da been married some forty years ago. Whenever there's a dance All the women want to go And they all want to dance with Cotton-Eyed Joe Daddy won't say But I think he know Whatever happened to Cotton-eyed Joe ! KH apr97
