[Chorus]
B    E                          B
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
                    E
One dusty street to walk up and down
                          A
Nothin' much to see but a starvin' hound
     B                                E
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town

[Verse 1]
E                       B
Down in the Delta where I was born
                            E
All we raised was cotton, potatoes and corn
                           A
I've picked cotton till my fingers hurt
B                                    E
Draggin' the sack through that Delta dirt
                         B
And I've worked hard the whole week long
                          E
Pickin' my fingers to the blood and bone
                                A 
There ain't a lot of money in a cotton bale
   B                     E  
At least when you try to sell

[Chorus]
B    E                          B
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
                    E
One dusty street to walk up and down
                          A
Nothin' much to see but a starvin' hound
     B                                E
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town

[Verse 2]
                        B
On Saturday nights we'd get dressed up
                     E
Catch us a ride on a pickup truck
                            A
On a gravel road, it nearly strangled us
     B                    E   B
That cotton pickin' Delta dust
E                                 B
We'd sit across the street on the depot porch
                             E
Lookin' at the folks lookin' back at us
                           A
Munchin' on a dust covered ice cream cone
B                           E   
Wondering how we'd get back home

[Chorus]
B      E                          B
From a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
                    E
One dusty street to walk up and down
                            A
Nothin' much to do but just hang around
     B                                E
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
B      E                          B
From a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
                    E 
One dusty street to walk up and down
                            A
Nothin' much to do but just hang around
     E                          B     E
In a Mississippi cotton pickin' Delta town
