In A Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town
Recorded by Charley Pride
written by Harold Dorman, Wiley Gann

C G7
In a Mississippi cotton picking Delta town
C
One dusty street to walk up and down
F
Nothing much to see but a starving hound
G7 C
In a Mississippi cotton picking Delta town

G7
Down in the Delta where I was born
C
All we raised was cotton potatoes and corn
F
I've picked cotton till my fingers hurt
G7 C
Dragging the sack through that Delta dirt

G7
And I've worked hard the whole week long
C
Picking my fingers to the blood and bone
F
There ain't a lot of money in a cotton bale
G7 C
At least when you try to sell

Repeat #1

G7
On Saturday nights we'd get dressed up
C
Catch us a ride on a pickup truck
F
On a gravel road it nearly strangled us
G7 C
That cotton picking Delta dust

G7
We'd sit across the street on the depot porch
C
Looking at the folks looking back at us
F
Munching on a dust covered ice cream cone
G7 C
And wondering how we'd get back home

Repeat #1

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Charlie Pride lyrics

Charley talks about dragging a sack through the delta dirt, many won't understand that phrase. But if you've ever pulled cotton, and I have, the sack may be 8 to 12 feet long and pulling it full of cotton is plenty of hard work. This song is not difficult to learn, copy In A Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town lyrics and chords, practice and enjoy.
