Far away and long ago,|
On the trail to the Alamo
Met a gal I used to know,
Ridin' on a Cotton-eyed Joe
|: Cotton-Eyed Joe,
Gimme that gal,
Cotton-Eyed Joe. :|
I said "Miss do you like to woo?"|
She said "Sir, with the likes of you"
I said "Gal, you're a honey bee,
How'd you like to marry me."
Dance I saw in a Texas town,
Boys all swing the gals around
I'll teach you to heel and toe,
Just come off that Cotton-eyed Joe.
Cotton-eyed Joe you mean out-law,|
Worst durn Hoss I ever saw
Hold my fiddle and hold my bow,
I'm gonna dance that Cotton-Eyed Joe.
