Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town
Written by Harold Dorman & Wiley Gann
Recorded by Charley Pride
Album: Pride Of America (1974)
       Essential Charley Pride (2006)

(Capo on 2)

(Chorus)
In a (D)Mississippi cotton pickin' (A)Delta town, one dusty street to (D)walk up and down
Nothing much to see but a (G)starvin' hound in a (A)Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta (D)town

(D)Down in the Delta where (A)I was born, all we raised was cotton po-(D)tatoes and corn
I've picked cotton till my (G)fingers hurt, (A)draggin' the sack through that Delta (D)dirt

And (D)I've worked hard the (A)whole week long pickin' my fingers to the (D)blood and bone
There ain't a lot of money in a (G)cotton bale at (A)least when you try to (D)sell

(Chorus)
In a (D)Mississippi cotton pickin' (A)Delta town, one dusty street to (D)walk up and down
Nothing much to see but a (G)starvin' hound in a (A)Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta (D)town

On (D)Saturday nights we'd (A)get dressed up, catch us a ride on a (D)pickup truck
On a gravel road it nearly (G)strangled us that (A)cotton pickin' Delta (D)dust

We'd (D)sit across the street on the (A)depot porch lookin' at the folks looking (D)back at us
Munchin' on a dust covered (G)ice cream cone, (A)wonderin' how we'd get back (D)home

(Chorus)
I'm on (D)Mississippi cotton pickin' (A)Delta town, one dusty street to (D)walk up and down
Nothing much to see but a (G)starvin' hound in a (A)Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta (D)town

(Chorus)
I'm on (D)Mississippi cotton pickin' (A)Delta town, one dusty street to (D)walk up and down
Nothing much to do but just (G)stayin' around in a (A)Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta (D)town
