FULL  MOON  PROFIT  [overtime]


The moon is bright tonight.
Been in the field twenty or more.
Got to pick the cotton ripe.
Off to "ORLEANS" next wagon onward.
What does the master call you.
[PICKER]-that is the name.
Me I'm????????     "overtime".
Up before sunrise-home at sunrise.
Sometimes just days on days.
Got to pick the cotton ripe.
FASHION-FASHION-they dont care,FASHION!!
Sold my children-without a care.
They work-last time I could care.
Dont cry-cant cry-yes,back then.
Just work-work hard-just work.
MASTER-he dont care-gold pieces eight.
Full moon gone down-we free to sleep.
Until sunrise the next day.
What you mean-you want pay.
""ALL YOU WILL GET,SWITCH ACROSS BACK"".
