The home of Eurovision lyrics

Traditional, arrangement by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

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

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

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

Oh Lordy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lordy, pick a bale a day
Oh Lordy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh Lordy, 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 so slow

Well, you wake up in the morning, hear the ding dong ring
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 all it you’re in trouble with the man

Let the midnight special shine her 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 sheriff will arrest you and he’ll take you down
And before you understand it you are prison bound

Let the midnight special shine her light on me
Let the midnight special shine it’s everloving light on me (On me, on me)
Let the midnight special shine her light on me
Let the midnight special shine it’s everloving light on me (On me, on me)
