    High Cotton (by Alabama)


    We didn't know that 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
    Choppin' 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


    ;-D LOL
