Cotton Jenny

By: Gordon Lightfoot[1][2][3]


Capo 1
G C G
There's a house on a hill, by a worn down weathered old mill
D G
In the valley below where the river winds, there's no such thing as bad times
C G
And a soft southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name
D G
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheel of love goes round
 
Chorus
C G
Wheels of love go round, love go round
A D
Love go round, a joyful sound
G C D
I ain't got a penny for a Cotton Jenny to spend
G C G
But then the wheels go round
 
G C G
Then a new day begins, I go down to the cotton gin
D G
And I make my time worthwhile to them, then I climb back up again
C G
And she waits by the door, "oh Cotton Jenny I'm sore"
D G
And she rubs my feet while the sun goes down, and the wheel of love goes round
 
Chorus
 
G C G
In the hot sickly south, when they say "well shut my mouth"
D G
I can never be free from the cotton grind, but I know I got what's mine
C G
A soft southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name
D G
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheel of love goes round
 
Chorus
 
C G C G C G
Wheel go round round and round mmm mmmm
