High Cotton


Written by Tom Pacheco, Rick Danko and Levon Helm.
Album: Jubilation
The lyrics are copyrighted. Please do not copy or redistribute.


The sun feels great I can tell today it's gonna shine
My lady's smiling both of us getting on just fine
Bills are paid the Caddy's new
Looks like the bad times they're all through
I'm in high cotton
I've forgotten that I had the blues

There's a hundred lucky ladybugs landing everywhere I see
I won a million dollars for a dollar in the lottery
My best friend C.W. is due
He beat every charge that the police threw
I'm in high cotton
I've forgotten that I had the blues

I'm in high cotton
Yes, I'm in high cotton
Soft and white as the clouds
I'm in high cotton
Popcorn's popping
There ain't no stoping me now

The summer wind is heavenly the honeysuckle's everywhere
I'm gonna pick my Gibson mandolin on the back porch chair
Worst Stan just got the news his wife took a lover and his money too
I'm in high cotton and forgot I got the blues

I'm in high cotton
Yes, I'm in high cotton
Soft and white as the clouds
I'm in high cotton
Popcorn's popping
There ain't no stopin me now

[Garth sax break]

I'm drinking coca a cola in a bottle that's frosty green
C.W. turned up with an authentic fifties coke machine
The old crowd is coming this afternoon
For a good time rock and roll BBQ
I'm high cotton
I've forgotton that I had the blues

I'm in high cotton
Yes, I'm in high cotton
Soft and white as the clouds
I'm in high cotton
Popcorn's popping
There ain't no stopin me now

(Repeat)

[Garth takes it home.]
