CD single cover for Rednex version.In 1994, Swedish eurodance band Rednex covered the song as "Cotton Eye Joe", combining their style with traditional American instruments, such as banjos, fiddles, and harmonicas. The version released by Rednex is often played in the US. Dancers will do the "spoke-line" dance "Cotton Eye Joe" [6] around the outside of the dance floor. There may also be line dancers doing dances such as "Crazy Legs" in the center of the floor.

This version of the song was very successful in Europe, reaching number 1 in the United Kingdom in January 1995, and also in the United States (where it peaked at #25 in March 1995) and Australia (where it peaked at #8 in April 1995). The song was also remixed in 2002. It has become a "standard" for wedding "DJs" all over the world, among songs such as the "Macarena", "The Electric Slide", and "YMCA." This version of the song is popular at sporting events.
Ray Benson of the Western Swing band Asleep at the Wheel talks about playing the Bob Wills version of "Cotton Eye Joe" in Texas in the 1970s, when the dance was very much alive.
A Western "Craze" followed the 1980 release of Urban Cowboy. The Bob Wills version of the song is still popular with dancers. In 1994, Swedish eurodance band Rednex covered the song as "Cotton Eye Joe".

Yes it was remixed by redneks but it's a traditional Irish reel.
The name of song is "Old Time Fiddle" Vince Gill sang it so did Merle Haggard, and I believe Hank Snow too.
"Cotton Eyed Joe" is a popular American folk song known at various times throughout the United States and Canada although today it is most commonly associated with the American South. "Cotton Eye Joe" is also a popular "spoke-line" dance [1] that can be seen and danced at country western dance venues. The 1980 film Urban Cowboy sparked a renewed interest in the dance, and most recently a version of the song recorded by the band Rednex in 1994 as "Cotton Eye Joe" has become popular.

The song reminds me a bit of 'Justified and ancient' by the KLF, featuring Tammy Wynette.
