I Never Picked Cotton recorded by Roy Clark written by Charlie Williams and Bobby George
G I never picked cotton
Like my mother did and my brother did And my sister did and my daddy died young D7 G Working in a coal mine When I was just a baby Too little for the cotton sack I played in the dirt while the others worked D7 G Till they couldn't straighten their backs And I made my self a promise When I was old enough to run That I'd never stay a single day D7 G In that Oklahoma sun repeat #1 Folks said that I grew up early And the farm couldn't hold me then So I stole ten bucks and a pick up truck D7 G And I never went back again And it was fast cars and whiskey Long legged girls and fun I had everything that money could bring D7 G And I took it all with a gun repeat #1 It was Saturday night in Memphis When a redneck grabbed my shirt And he said go back to your cotton sack D7 G I left him lying in the dirt And they'll take me in the morning To the gallows just outside And in the time I've got there ain’t a hell of a lot D7 G I can look back on with pride G I never picked cotton
Like my mother did and my brother did And my sister did and I’ll never die young D7 G Working in a coal mine

is a country boy song, most people don't know about picking cotton,
even the younger country boys don't since it's all done by machines
now. But it was hard work, I know because I had to do it when I was a
young lad and it wasn't fun. Nevertheless, the old song is fun to do,
just copy and paste these I Never Picked Cotton lyrics and chords and enjoy.
