I Never Picked Cotton Lyrics


Johnny Cash - I Never Picked Cotton Songtext

I never picked cotton
Like my mother did and my brother did and my sister did
And my daddy died young workin? 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
Till they couldn't straighten up their backs

And I made myself a promise when I was old enough to run
That I'd never stay a single day in that Oklahoma sun, but


Folks said that I grew up early and the farm couldn't hold me then
So I stole ten bucks and a pickup truck 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 and I took it all with a gun,


It was Saturday night in Memphis when a redneck grabbed my shirt
He said go back to your cotton sack, I left him lyin? in the dirt

And they'll take me in the morning to gallows just outside
And in the time I got there ain't a heck of a lot I can look back on with pride,
