Cotton Eyed Joe has been a popular folk song in the south long before the Rednex version was made. It's actually about a black guy stealing the guys wife; saying he's cotton eyed is a reference to the eyes clouding over from the consumption of methanol (a byproduct of distilling alcohol that should be drained off).
His eyes were crossed, an' his nose was flat,
An' his teeth were out, but what of that?
For he was tall, an' he was slim,
An' so my gal she follered him.
Original versions of the song are still popular in Texas, and other southern states.

tldr - drunk ****** steals wife

That's what I thought it was about, some drifter dude who flew into town, stealing another guy's girlfriend, and taking off to Vegas with her or something.

Not sure if that's better for talent shows and children singalongs.

Your eyes don't "cloud over" from methanol. It blinds you, period. It's an optic nerve poison.

He is referring to what blind eyes look like.

well yeah. what did you think the song was about?
#37 to #28 - creepyunclebob (06/28/2013) [-]
Some guy named Joe with cotton for eyes, obviously.

The most annoying thing about this post is that they used the wrong context of "there" twice...

Yeah no.

That arrow in the knee thing being an old saying isn't true either.
#29 - trickytrickster (06/28/2013) [-]
Except the song is from the Civil War era if not earlier, before "testing for STDs" even existed.

Sweedish...

I once wrote a ten page play for my AP English class about Cotton Eyed Joe. It was a play on the greentexts about it. I think I actually got an A on it.
User avatar #18 - frogie (06/28/2013) [-]
I had this song as a kid in my Crazy Frog cd.
