I Never Picked Cotton lyrics
[Chorus] I never picked cotton But my mother did And
my brother did And my sister did And my daddy died
young Workin' in the coal mine

When I was just a baby Too little for a cotton sack
I played in the dirt While the others worked 'Til they
couldn't straighten up their backs I made myself a
promise When I was big enough to run That I'd never
stay a single day In that Oklahoma sun

[Chorus] Folks said I grew up early And that the farm
couldn't hold me then so I stole ten bucks and a pickup
truck And I never went back again Then it was fast
cars and whiskey Long haired girls and fun I had everything
that money could bring And I took it all with a gun

[Chorus] It was Saturday night in Memphis When a redneck
grabbed my shirt When he said go back to your cotton
sack I left him dying in the dirt They'll take me in
the morning To the gallos just outside And in the time
I got There ain't a hell of alot That I can look back on with pride

[Chorus]
