    High Cotton

    We didn't know that times were lean
    Round our house the grass was green
    It didn't seem like things were all that bad
    I bet we walked a thousand miles
    Chopin' cotton and pushin' plows
    And learnin' 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 lookin' back, I understand.


    We Were Walkin' in High Cotton
    Old times there are not forgotten
    Those fertile fields are never far away
    We Were Walkin' in High Cotton
    Old times there are not forgotten
    Leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced.

    When Sunday mornings rolled around
    We dressed up in hand-me downs
    Just in time, to gather 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 walkin' in high cotton.
