We didn't know the 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 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 think I understand. (Refrain:) 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 morning rolled around We dressed up in hand-me downs Just in time, together 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. (Refrain) (Change key to B) (Refrain) We were walkin' In High Cotton.
