Lyrics for 'Cotton-Eyed Joe'

Do you remember a long time ago,
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

I could have been married a long time ago,
If it hadn't been for cotton-eyed Joe.
If it hadn't been for cotton-eyed Joe.

Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow,
Wouldn't play nothin' but a cotton-eyed Joe.
Wouldn't play nothin' but a cotton-eyed Joe.

Play it fast or play it slow,
Didn't play nothin' but cotton-eyed Joe.
Didn't play nothin' but cotton-eyed Joe.

Don't you remember a long time ago,
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

Where do you come? Where do you go?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?

Come for to see you, come for to sing,
Come for to show you my diamond ring.
Come for to show you my diamond ring.
