About this tab version
Correct Chords, Correct Words, Chorus In The Right Place. Was this info helpful? Yes No

    This is the version from WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT cd.

    As Leadbelly plays this he speeds up slightly all the way through the song,

    Think of an old steam train starting up and gathering pace, slowly building,

    but be careful, you don't want to get too fast by the end, pace is everything.


    The words are right for this version, but if I've missed any glaring mistakes,

    let me know and I'll sort them out


    IF YOU .... LIKED ..... USED ..... COPIED ... READ .... GLANCED AT  this tab,

     When I was a little baby,   My Mother rocked me in the cradle
              A                    E
     In them old cotton fields at home
             A                                    D               A
     When I was a little baby,   My Mother would rock me in the cradle

                       D                                     A

              A                    E
     In them old cotton fields at home
             A                           D            A

     It may sound a little funny,   But you didn't make very much money
              A                    E
     In them old cotton fields at home
              A                                     D              A
