Gonna jump down, spin around, pick a bale of cotton
Gonna jump down, spin around, pick a bale of day
Gonna jump down, spin around, pick a bale of cotton
Gonna jump down, spin around, pick a bale a day
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of day
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of day

I say me and my buddy gonna pick a bale of cotton
Now me and my buddy gonna pick a bale of day
I say me and my buddy gonna pick a bale of cotton
Now me and my buddy gonna pick a bale of day

Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale a day
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lawdy, pick a bale a day

On top of old Smokey, all covered with snow
I lost my true lover by courting so slow
For courting's a pleasure and parting is grief
And a false hearted lover is worse than a thief
On top of old Smokey, all covered with snow
I lost my true lover by courting to slow

When you wake up in the morning, you hear the ding dong ring
And you go marching to the table, see the same old thing
See the fork on the table, nothing in your pan
If you say a thing about it, you're in trouble with a man

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's everloving light on me

If you ever go to Houston, well you'd better act right
And you'd better not gamble and you'd better not fight
For the sherrif will arrest you and he'll take you down
And before you understand it, you are prison bound

Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's everloving light on me
On me, on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's everloving light on me
On me, on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's everloving light on me
On me, on me
Let the midnight special shine a light on me
Let the midnight special shine it's everloving light on me
On me, on me
