Cotton Fields
The Beach Boys Lyrics


When I was a little bitty baby
My mama done rock me in the cradle
In them old cotton fields back home
It was back in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home

Let me tell you now well got me in a fix
I caught a nail in my tire doing lickitey splits
I had to walk a long long way to town
Came along a nice old man well he had a hat on
Wait a minute mister can you give me some directions
I gonna want to be right off for home

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama done rock me in the cradle
In them old cotton fields back home
It was back in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cotton fields back home

Don't care if them cotton balls get rotten
When I got you baby, who needs cotton
In them old cotton fields back home
Brother only one thing more that's gonna warm you
A summer's day out in California
It's gonna be those cotton fields back home

It was back in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
Give me them cotton fields
(it was back in Louisiana)
Let me hear it for the cotton fields
(just about a mile from Texarkana)
You know that there's just no place like home

Well boy it sure feels good to breathe the air back home
You shoulda seen their faces when they seen how I grown
In them old cotton fields back home

Al killed it. His influence is overlooked a lot, but this is a gem.

Rexchasing RC

Fabulous cover by the Beach Boys, infusing this classic with their own style.

Nate Ruvin

One of my personal favorite Beach Boys songs.

@Jill Pe I mean… COVID’s still a thing… some people are still out of work w/ nothing to do… whether you’re apt enough to believe it or not…

Also, did you have nothing better to do 5 years ago than to spew your bullshit around? Huh?

Beach boys are up there with the best, the contribution they have made to music is fantastic, they stand tall against any other major band.
