[Instrumental Intro]

A                          E         A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree
                          D    E     A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree

 
[Verse 1]

    A              D      A 
One day a boy was ‘venturing
     D   F#m          E       A 
Heading down to the shallow creek
    A                 D      A
He saw a girl- pretty as can be
                            E        A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree


[Chorus]

A
the cottonwood tree, the cottonwood tree
                            E        A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree
                          D     E     A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree


[Verse 2]

     A                 D           A
she saw him watchin’ across the stream
      D     F#m      E   A 
said hi, my name is Kimberly
     A                       D          A
Her hair was golden and her eyes were green
                              E          A
The same bright green as the cottonwood tree


[Chorus]

A
the cottonwood tree, the cottonwood tree
                            E           A
her eyes were green as the cottonwood tree
                             D    E     A
her eyes were green as the cottonwood tree


[Instrumental Verse]

Heading down to the shallow creek
    A                 D      A
He saw a girl- pretty as can be
                            E        A
Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree


[Chorus]

  A                D      A 
well they started twice a week 
 D       F#m          E       A
walking down to that spot to meet
    A                          D      A
sittin, and a talkin’, and a sippin’ tea

oh several years later, one fair morning
     D          F#m          E       A
he brought her there and he took a knee 
    A               D      A
asked dear Kim his wife to be  
      D              F#m                  E        A
he tackled him and kissed him neath the cottonwood tree

singin hymns and whistling   
       A                          D            A
their hair turned white, but her eyes stayed green
       D       F#m                E           A 
their love it bloomed like their cottonwood tree

the cottonwood tree, the cottonwood tree
                                  E         A
their love it bloomed like their cottonwood tree

their love it bloomed like their cottonwood tree

the day she died he felt so had he
 D            F#m            E        A
layin’ on the roots she was six feet deep
   A                          D      A
cried and he hollered til he fell asleep
                            E         A

curled up, shiverin’ neath their cottonwood tree

he went to heaven not long after she

laid next to her in the place they’d meet
        A                            D           A
if you trod by the river near that place you’ll see
     D          F#m       E           A
two headstones neath the cottonwood tree
     D          F#m       E           A
two headstones neath that cottonwood tree

a love so sweet neath the cottonwood tree
