Cotton Eye Joe by

If it hadn't been for cotton-eye joe
I'd been married long time ago
Where did you come from. Where did you go?
Where did you come from cotton-eye joe?

If it hadn't been for cotton-eye joe
I'd been married long time ago
Where did you come from. Where did you go?
Where did you come from cotton-eye joe?

 He came to town like a midwinter storm
He rode through the fields so
Handsome and strong
His eyes was his tools and his smile was his gun
But all he had come for was having some fun

If it hadn't been for cotton-eye joe
I'd been married long time ago
Where did you come from. Where did you go?
Where did you come from cotton-eye joe?

 He brought disaster wherever he went
The hearts of the girls was to hell broken sent
They all ran away so nobody would know
And left only men cause of cotton-eye joe

If it hadn't been for cotton-eye joe
I'd been married long time ago
Where did you come from. Where did you go?
Where did you come from cotton-eye joe?
WELL... IF ALL THE CHICKS IN ONE TOWN R-U-N-N-O-F-T WITH A DUE THAT JUST ROE BY ON A HORSE THEN THE DUES IN THOES PARTS WERE LAKING.

In jr. High cotton eye joe is any dude in high school with a car.

In high school cotton eye joe is any dude who is in college who can buy beer.

In college he appears in the form of any dude who has a good job and is rich.

Cotton eye joe is everywhere and he never goes away. You learn to hate him because he makes you feel bad about yourself. He makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. He torchers you.

Then one day you realize that cotton eye joe is not real and the pain goes away and the discontent you had is gone. You can finally be happy. Of course by now you are old and fat and suffering from high cholesterol, but at least you can be free from cotton eye joe.

Yes... we shall from this point on call the phenomenon as Cotton-Eye-Joe syndrome. And you are right. Women of this age like the dude who gives them the most trouble. Girls of a certain age will friggin throw themselves at a dude who treats them poorly. As soon as the dude treats them well FFFFFTTTTTT kicked to the curb.

So is Cotton Eye Joe a dashing hillbilly or is he a hunk amongst hillbillies?

Because if he's a dashing hillbilly, I think it would sting more, because you lost your girl to the bayou

In case you haven't guessed by now, this song always makes me think of hillbillies

Or as they're properly known - Hill-Williams

It always make me chuckle when they play this song at weddings.
