COTTON JENNY   Time: 4/4 (sync)   Tenor: G   Bass: C - D (C)


          1          *          4                       1
There's a house on a hill, by a worn down weathered old mill

                57                  *              *                    1
In the vally be-low where the river winds, there's no such thing as bad times

      *              *         4                  1
And a soft, southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name

             57                   *             *                 1
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go round

CHORUS:

                  4      *            1         *
Wheels of love go round, .... love go rou-ou-ou-ound

        2      *            5         *
Love go round, ... a joyful sou-ou-ou-ound

        1               4               5          *
I ain't got a penny for Cotton Jenny to spend, but then

              1      4     1
The wheels go rou-ou-ou-ou-ound

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/gordon_lightfoot/cotton_jenny_crd.html ]
         1          *          4                  1
When the new day be-gins, I go down to the cotton gin
              5                  *            *               1
And I make my time worthwhile to them, Then I climb back up a-gain
        *            *        4                1
And she waits by the door, oh Cotton Jenny I'm sore
            5                       *             *                 1
She rubs my feet while the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go round


       1           *                4                 1
In the hot, sickly south, when they say "well shut my mouth"
               5                    *            *                 1
I can never be free from the cotton grind, but I know I got what's mine
  *              *         4                  1
A soft, southern flame, oh Cotton Jenny's her name
             5                    *             *                 1
She wakes me up when the sun goes down, and the wheels of love go round
