[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

Heading down to the shallow creek

He saw a girl- pretty as can be

Sitting there ‘neath the cottonwood tree


[Chorus]

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

their love it bloomed like their cottonwood tree

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

two headstones neath the cottonwood tree

a love so sweet neath the cottonwood tree
