Southern Talk

Today, for no particular reason, I was thinking about a phrase I remembered discussing in a Southern Lit class back at UCF. I had thought about doing a post on Southern phrases like this, but I couldn't find any I really liked, and the weird thing was that I keyed in this phrase on Google, both with and without quotes and got no matches outside of references to textile products, like low-rise cotton underwear.

So, do any of you know what it means if someone tells you "your cotton is low?"

Now that's one I haven't heard.

I have never heard it before but I would think it was in relation to how much cotton was produced in the field?

I've lived in the Cotton Belt most of my life, and no, never heard it.
