Rednex: Cotton Eye Joe

56

Cotton Eye Joe segna l’esordio nella dance degli anni 90 del gruppo musicale svedese dei Rednex.
Questo brano viene alla luce nel lontano 1994 e si ispira al tradizionale brano country Cotton Eyed joe, le sonorità infatti sono tipiche della musica country.
Il singolo in questione ebbe in poco tempo enorme successo, tanto da scalare tutte le classifiche dance mondiali ottenendo anche diversi primi posti in molti paesi europei e non.
In Germania con più di un milione di copie vendute ha addirittura vinto il disco di diamante.
Come tutti i brani dance degli anni 90, anche questo è stato oggetto di innumerevoli remix, ultimo dei quali quello del 2002.

Qui sotto vi lascio il video ed il testo della canzone, se invece volete vedere altre canzoni che hanno fatto la storia degli anni 70, 80 e 90 cliccate su questo link.

Cotton Eye Joe testo

If it hadn’t been for Cotton-Eye Joe
I’d been married a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a 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 a long time ago
Where did you come from, where did you go?
Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Jo
