I left my babe in Mississippi, whoo, pickin' cotton down on her knee (Spoken: Yeah)
She said, "Babe, if you get Chicago, please write me a letter, if you please." (Spoken: Yeah)

I said, "Baby, that's all right, baby, that's all right for you."
I said, "Baby, that's all righ-yigh-yigh', that's all right for you." (Spoken: She didn't say what she mean.)
"You just keep a-pickin' cotton right there, oh babe, 'til I get through." (Spoken: Yeah)

Now I'm gon' leave Mississippi, hopin' I might flag a ride (Spoken: What you say?)

Baby, when I get in Chicago, I do swear I'm gonna take a chance (Spoken: Take your time now and play it right, here, 'cause it's last a while.)
When I get in Chicago, babe, I do swear I'm gon' take a chance (Spoken: Yeah)
If I don't never get back to Mississippi, I'm sure gonna change your name
