VERSE E Willie and Laura Mae Jones were our neighbors as long time back A7 E They lived right down the road from us in a shack just like our shack A7 E We worked in the fields together and we learned to count on each other C D When you live off the land you don't have time to think about another man's E colour CHORUS C D E The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat C D E But that was another place and another time

VERSE 2 E We'd sit out on the front porch in the evening when the sun went down A7 E Willie would play and Laura would sing and the chillins would dance around A7 E And I'd bring over my guitar and we'd play into the night C D E And every now and then Willie would grin and say "Boy you play alright" And that made me feel so good CHORUS C D E The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat C D E But that was another place and another time FILL VERSE 3 E I remember we'd hitch up the mules when Saturday rolled around A7 E We'd always stop by Willie's house and say "Do y'all need anything from town" A7 E He'd say "No but why don't y'all stop on your way back home A E And I'll get Laura Mae to cook up some corn poms" And you know they're good! CHORUS C D E The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat C D E But that was another place and another time PLAY INTRO VERSE 4 E The years rolled past our land and took back what they'd given A7 E And we all knew we'd have to move if we was gonna make a living A7 E So we all moved off and went our seperate ways C D E And it sure has hard to say goodbye to Willie and Laura Mae CHORUS C D E The cotton was high and the corn was growing fat C D E But that was another place and another time VERSE 5 E The years rolled past our door and we heard from them no more A7 E Till I saw Willie down town the other day A7 I said y'all stop by tonight and we can sit out and eat a bite E A E We'd love to see your chillins and Laura Mae BRIDGE C D C D He shook his head real slow spoke with his eyes so kind C D E This is another place and another time REPEAT CHORUS X2 PLAY INTRO w/wah pedal Fade out & ad lib If it's wrong let me know!!
