*High cotton is a common term through the American South. Walking in ‘high cotton’ means enjoying financial euphoria.This came from the old south where cotton was one of the few cash crops when this country was first settled. High cotton is a reference to the tallest healthiest plants, which produced the most cotton. To be in high cotton is to have a valuable, bumper crop.
