(chorus twice)
o that cottonwood

I was born in a west texas town
Cotton fields all around
Tumble weeds roll over the ground
all across this quiet little town
Daddy taught us how to love this land
and how to be an honest man
never thought these cross road plains
would bring so much pain

o that cottonwood
o that cottonwood

start a farm under western skies
doesnt matter if you're black or white
this land was made for you and me
home of the brave and land of the free
sunsets that'll make you cry
dust storms two miles high
hot sun to test my faith
dirt roads and rattlesnakes

(chorus twice)
o that cottonwood
