Gordon Lightfoot Cotton Jenny Lyrics

Cotton Jenny Songtext

There's a house on a hill
By a worn down weathered old mill
In the valley below where the river winds
There's no such thing as bad times
And a soft southern flame
Cotton Jenny's her name
She wakes me up when the sun goes down
And the wheels of love go 'round
 
Wheels of love go 'round
Love go 'round, love go 'round
A joyful sound
I ain't got a penny for Cotton Jenny to spend
But then the wheels go 'round
 
When the new day begins
I go down to the cotton gin
And I make my time worth while to them
Then I climb back up again
And she waits by the door
Oh Cotton Jenny I'm sore
And she rubs my feet while the sun goes down
And the wheels of love go 'round
 
(CHORUS)
 
In the hot, sickly South
When they say we'll shut my mouth
I can never be free from my cotton grind
But I know I got what's mine
A soft southern flame
Oh Cotton Jenny's her name
She wakes me up when the sun goes down
And the wheels of love go 'round
 
(CHORUS)
