    Lyrics

    Willie and Laura Mae Jones were our neighbors a long time back
    They lived right down the road from us in a shack, just like our shack
    The people worked the land together, and we learned to count on each other
    When you live off the land you don't have the time to think about another man's coulour

    The cotton was high and the corn was growin' fine
    But that was another place and another time

    We'd sit out on the front porch in the evenin' when the sun went down
    Willie would play and the kids would sing and everybody would mess around
    And Daddy bring on his guitar, we'd play all through the night
    And every now and then ol' Willie would grin and say
    'Hey you play alright' (and that made me feel so good)

    I remember the best times of all when Saturday came around
    We'd always stop by Willie's house and say
    'Do y'all need anything from town?'
    He'd say 'No, but why don't cha all stop on your way back through
    And I'll get Laura Mae to cook us some barbecue (you know, they good)'

    The cotton was high and the corn was growin' fine (yes it was)
    But that was another place and another time

    The years rolled past our land, and took back what they'd given
    We all knew we'd have to move if we were gonna make a livin'
    So we all moved on and went about our separate ways
    Sure it was hard to say goodbye to Willie and Laura Mae (Jones), oh yeah

    The cotton was high and the corn was growin' fine (yes it was)
    But that was another place and another time

    The cotton was high and the corn was growin' fine (the cotton was growin' fine)
    But that was another place and another time
