Burl Ives - Cotton-Eyed Joe

Do You remember a long time ago,
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe
TThere was a man called cotton-eyed Joe

I could have been married a long time ago
If it hadn't been for cotton-eyed Joe
If it hadn't been for cotton-eyed Joe

Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow
Wouldn't play nothin' but a cotton-eyed Joe
Wouldn't play nothin' but a cotton-eyed Joe

Play it fast or play it slow
Didn't play nothin' but cotton-eyed Joe
Didn't play nothin' but cotton-eyed Joe

Don't you remember a long time ago
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe

Where do you come? Where do you go?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?

Come for to see you, come for to sing,
Come for to show you my diamond ring
Come for to show you my diamond ring
