Eleven Cent Cotton
Wagoner/Stuart
Album: The Wagonmaster
NOTE: In the first verse, don't play the B7.  In all other verses, it's played.


INTRO: E

E
Eleven cent cotton and a forty cent meat
E
How in the world can a poor man eat
E
Mule's up high, cotton down low
                                       B7        E
How in the world in the world can they raise the dough


CHORUS:
        A             E
Take me back, take me back
        B7                      E
Take me back to my old Carolina home


Eleven cent cotton and a heavy land tax
Uncle Sam's got my money and he can't get it back
Debt's got the farmer, we all know well
If it don't turn around she's gone to hell


CHORUS


SOLO: D  E  D  E  D  E  B7  E  A  E  B7  E


No fish in the pond, no worms in the ground
Mockin' bird's singin' and he ain't made a sound
So I jumped in the river and I thought I'd drown
Seen a redheaded woman and I couldn't go down


CHORUS (2x)


SOLO

E
Eleven cent cotton and a forty cent meat
                       B7       E
How in the world can a poor man eat


OUTRO: D  E
