VERSE
E
Willie and Laura Mae Jones were our neighbors as long time back
     A7                                     E
They lived right down the road from us in a shack just like our shack
                                        A7                    E
We worked in the fields together and we learned to count on each other
                               C                  D
When you live off the land you don't have time to think about another man's

CHORUS
    C                       D                E
The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat
    C                D                 E
But that was another place and another time

VERSE 2
E
We'd sit out on the front porch in the evening when the sun went down
A7                                              E
Willie would play and Laura would sing and the chillins would dance around
                                      A7            E
And I'd bring over my guitar and we'd play into the night
                       C                          D              E
And every now and then Willie would grin and say "Boy you play alright"

And that made me feel so good


CHORUS
    C                       D                E
The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat
    C                D                 E
But that was another place and another time

VERSE 3
E
I remember we'd hitch up the mules when Saturday rolled around
     A7                                     E
We'd always stop by Willie's house and say "Do y'all need anything from town"
                                 A7                    E
He'd say "No but why don't y'all stop on your way back home
                   A                   E
And I'll get Laura Mae to cook up some corn poms"

And you know they're good!


CHORUS
    C                       D                E
The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat
    C                D                 E
But that was another place and another time


PLAY INTRO


VERSE 4
E
The years rolled past our land and took back what they'd given
     A7                           E
And we all knew we'd have to move if we was gonna make a living
                        A7                E
So we all moved off and went our seperate ways
                        C              D                E
And it sure has hard to say goodbye to Willie and Laura Mae


CHORUS
    C                       D                E
The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat
    C                D                 E
But that was another place and another time


VERSE 5
E
The years rolled past our door and we heard from them no more
A7                                     E
Till I saw Willie down town the other day
                                 A7
I said y'all stop by tonight and we can sit out and eat a bite
E                     A                  E
We'd love to see your chillins and Laura Mae

BRIDGE
C                      D    C                   D
He shook his head real slow spoke with his eyes so kind
C               D                  E
This is another place and another time


REPEAT CHORUS X2
