Amber Hayes – Cotton Eyed Joe lyrics

If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe
If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe
Rode into town and made me believe he’s spent half his life just a lookin’ for me

I thought he loved me but boy I was wrong cause he had his fun and we were over and done
If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe
If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe

I know you think he’s heaven sent but he’ll leave your heart all broken and bent
Trust me when I tell you to leave him alone cause nothing good ever came from Cotton Eyed Joe
If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe

Keep on dancin’ I’ll tell you the tale about a tall, dark thing with eyes so blue
With a lookty look to every girl in town giving the other man just another rebound

I heard the story but it couldn’t be true till he rode through here back in ‘02
He broke my heart and stole my soul makin’ me another victim of Cotton Eyed Joe
If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe

If it hadn’t been for Cotton Eyed Joe I’d been married a long time ago
Where did you come from where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eyed Joe
Cotton Eyed Joe where did you go
Cotton Eyed Joe
Cotton Eyed Joe
