This old Ledbetter song has been redone by more than just CCR: The Beach Boys 
screwed it up really bad, Harry Belafonte sang it, Ace Cannon played it on the 
sax, Floyd Cramer did it on the piano, Pete Fountain blew it out, Bill Monroe 
bluegrassed it, The Highwaymen, The New Chrisy Minstrals, and, yes, even 
Lawrence Welk did it Live at Lake Tahoe. Here's how me and the boys do it:

Cotton Fields (Ledbetter)

[E] When I was a little bitty baby
My [A] mama would rock me in the cradle
In them [E] ole cotton fields back [B7] home
It was [E] down in Louisi[E7]ana
Just about a [A] mile from Texarkana
In them [E] ole [B7] cotton fields back [E] home

[step up to A] When them [A] cotton bolls get rotten
You cant [E] pick very much cotton
In them ole cotton fields back [B7] home
It was [E] down in Louisi[E7]ana
Just about a [A] mile from Texarkana
In them [E] ole [B7] cotton fields back [E] home

from Ronnie's Groovy Chopros

keep it in tune,
