tall cotton lyrics – eric bibb

my great grand ma told me when i was young
keep a song in your heart and the truth on your tongue
you’ve been walking in tall coton all your days
you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
well the years rolled by and i’ve done all i could
to follow her advice and it turn out good
i’ve been walking in tall coton all of my days
i’ve been walking in tall coton all of my days
told my good friend zora on the telephone
though the past is gone and the futur’s unknown
you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
child you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
well i know where i’m going and who’s going with me
a place full of joy so baby please don’t quit me
i’ll be walking with you in tall coton all of my days
we’ll be walking in tall coton all of our days
there’s a long way to heaven and then again there’s here
and now
if you know where to find it my great grand ma told me
how you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
that’s what she said you’ll be walking in tall coton all
your days
another thing she told me when i was a child
keep a shiny pair of shoes child you’ll always be in
style
you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
yeah you’ll be walking in tall coton all your days
