1. Well, me and my partner can pick a bale of cotton.
Well, me and my partner can pick a bale a day.

Refrain
Oh pick a bale, oh pick a bale, oh pick a bale of cotton,
Oh pick a bale, oh pick a bale, oh pick a bale a day.

2. I can jump-a down and turn around and pick a bale of cotton,
I can jump-a down and turn around and pick a bale of hay. Refrain

3. I had a little girl could pick… Refrain

4. I’m on my way to Texas to pick… Refrain
