High Cotton

Song Author Scott Anders og Roger Murrah Performer: Alabama , Scott Anders og Roger Murrah Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]We didn't know the times were lean
[C]Around our home the grass was green
It [G]didn't seem like things were all that [D7]bad   
I [G]bet we walked a thousand miles
[C]Chopping cotton and pushing plows
And [G]learning how to [D7]give it all we [G]had  


As life went on and years went by
[C]I saw the light in daddy's eyes
And [G]felt the love in mama's [D7]hands
[G]They kept us warm and kept us fed
[C]Taught us how to look ahead
Now [G]looking back I [D7]think I under[G]stand


We Were Walking in High Cotton
Old times [C]there are not forgotten
Those [G]fertile fields are never far a[D7]way   
We were walking in [G]high cotton
Old times [C]there are not forgotten
Leaving [G]home was the hardest [D7]thing we ever [G]faced


When Sunday morning rolled around
[C]We dressed up in hand-me downs
Just [G]in time together with the [D7]church
[G]Sometimes I think how long it's been
[C]And how it impressed me then
It [G]was the only day my [D7]daddy wouldn't [G]work


We Were Walking in High Cotton
Old times [C]there are not forgotten
Those [G]fertile fields are never far a[D7]way   
We were walking in [G]high cotton
Old times [C]there are not forgotten
Leaving [G]home was the hardest [D7]thing we ever [G]faced


We didn't know the times were lean
Around our home the grass was green
It didn't seem like things were all that bad
I bet we walked a thousand miles
Chopping cotton and pushing plows
And learning 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 looking back I think I understand

We Were Walking in High Cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walking in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leaving 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

We Were Walking in High Cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walking in high cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Leaving home was the hardest thing we ever faced
