T. Ritter
Recorded 2/15/60
=================
/ = single strum
=================
Key: F / Capo: 1st / Play: E
INTRO: A E B7 E
VERSE:
[E]Pick a lot of cotton [A]drag a long sack
[B7]Comin' cross the field well I [E]see Boss Jack
[E]He's a-ridin' saddle of a [A]single foot roan
[A]When you [B7]know that hoss you'll [E]leave him alone
That ol' roan's got green in his eyes
Mean as the devil and twice as wise
Fire in his nose and a bow in his back
Can't nobody ride him but Boss Jack
CHORUS:
[A]C'mon children [E]bend your back
[B7]Work a little faster [E]fill your sack
[E]Then you [A]hitch up the wagon [E]take it to the gin
 
 B7/ (-------------no music--------------)

Finish pickin' before the winter sets in
INSTRUMENTAL: A E B7 E
VERSE:
Now here a while back when the crop was laid by
Remember who took us on a big fish fry
Caught a heap of catfish, goggle-eye, and carp
Danced and sung to the guitar and harp
Well someday ol' Boss Jack's gonna set us all free
Gabriel's gonna blow for you and me
Angel's gonna bring that chariot from above
Flappin' their wings like a turtledove
REPEAT CHORUS
