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

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

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

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