Trivia

Wist je dat? Cottonfields is een cover van de legendarische blueszanger Leadbelly, die het rond 1940 opnam. The Beach Boys namen in 1968 ook een versie van het nummer op, die meer afweek van het origineel. In tegenstelling tot Udo Jürgens scoorden The Beach Boys een Top 40-hit met het nummer. In september 1969 stond Contton Fields van The Beach Boys op de twaalde plaats. De tekstregel "Way down in Louisiana, just about a mile from Texarkana" is geografisch gezien onmogelijk. Texarkana ligt op de grens tussen de staten Texas en Arkansas, maar dat is zo'n 50 kilometer (30 mijl) ten noorden van de grens met Louisiana.

Songtekst

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in my cradle
In them old cottonfields back home
But when I became a little older
My daddy would take me on his shoulder
In them old cottonfields back home

Cause when the cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home
Way down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cottonfields back home

Sing
La lalala la lalala la lalala la

You may think it is very funny
But we didn't make much money
In them old cottonfields back home
You may think it is very funny
But we didn't make much money
In them old cottonfields back home

Cause when the cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home
Way down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cottonfields back home

Sing
La lalala la lalala la lalala la

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in my cradle
In them old cottonfields back home
But when I became a little older
My daddy would take me on his shoulder
In them old cottonfields back home

Cause when the cotton bolls get rotten
You can't pick very much cotton
In them old cottonfields back home
Way down in Louisiana
Just about a mile from Texarkana
In them old cottonfields back home

Sing
La lalala la lalala la lalala la
