California Cotton Fields (Remastered LP Version) - Emmylou Harris

My driftin' memory goes back

to the spring of '43

When I was just a child in

momma's arms

 

My daddy plowed the ground

and prayed someday he could leave

This run-down

mortgaged Oklahoma farm

 

And then one night

I heard my daddy sayin' to my momma

That he'd finally saved enough to go

 

California was his dream,

a paradise for he had seen

Pictures in magazines that told him so

 

California cottonfields

Where labor camps were filled

With worried men with broken dreams

 

California cottonfields

As close to wealth as daddy ever came

 

Almost everything

 

we had was sold or left behind

From my daddy's plow

to the fruit that momma canned

 

Some folks came to say farewell

or see what all we had to sell

Some just came to shake my daddy's hand

 

That model a was loaded down

and California bound

And a change of luck

was just four days away

 

But the only change that

I remember seein' for my daddy

 

Was when

his dark hair turned to silver gray

 

California cottonfields

Where labor camps were filled

With worried men with broken dreams

 

California cottonfields

As close to wealth as daddy ever came

 

California cottonfields

 

Where labor camps were filled

With worried men with broken dreams

 

California cottonfields

As close to wealth as daddy ever came
