Cotton-Eyed Joe Lyrics, Chords and Video

October 22, 2008

History
Cotton-Eye Joe is an American southern folksong. It is unclear exactly when it was written, although its existence predates the Civil War.

Lyrics
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.

Guitar Chords and Lyrics
It doesn’t get much more fun or easier than this – only one chord and rootin’ tootin’ good southern fun!
