Subject: RE: 20 Cent Cotton, 90 Cent Meat
Here's my transcription from the sound file at Honking Duck:
FOUR CENT COTTON
As sung by the Skillet Lickers
Columbia 15746-D :: Recorded October 24, 1931 :: Issued July 1932
Goin' down the road, hootin' and a-hollerin',
I got drunk on four-cent cotton.
Woke up this mornin' feelin' kind o' rotten.
I've been drunk on four-cent cotton.
Times is gettin' hard. They're gettin' kind o' rotten.
Ever'body's sellin' four-cent cotton.
