I got cotton in the bottom land
My good wife and them kids of mine
Get new shoes come pickin' time
Ev'ry night when I go to bed
They live on beans eight days and nine
Get 'em fat come come pickin' time
The corn is yellow and the beans are high
The work is hard til layin' by
Layin' by til pickin' time
It's hard to see by the coal-oil light
'Cause a jug of coal-oil costs a dime
Stay up late come pickin' time
My old wagon barely gets me to town
Keep her in shape so she'll be fine
Haul my cotton come pickin' time
Last Sunday mornin' when they passed the hat
But the preacher smiled and said that's fine
The Lord'll wait til pickin' time
