      Lyrics for Charley Pride - "Mississippi Cotton Picking Delta Town"

      [Chorus]
      In a Mississippi cotton pickin' delta town
      One dusty street to walk up and down
      Nothing much to do but hang around
      In a Mississippi cotton pickin' delta town

      Down in the delta where I was born
      All we raised was cotton, potatoes and corn
      I've picked cotton 'til my fingers hurt
      Draggin' a sack through the delta dirt
      I've worked hard the whole weeklong
      Pickin' my fingers to the blood and bone
      Ain't a lot of money in cotton bale
      At least when you try to sell

      [Chorus]

      On Saturday night, we'd get dressed up
      Catch us a ride on a pickup truck
      On a gravel road that nearly strangled us
      That cotton pickin' delta dust
      We'd sit across the street on the depot porch
      Lookin' at the folks lookin' back at us
      Munchin' on a dust covered ice cream cone
      Wondering how we'd get back home

      [Chorus]
