Note: Bessie on 'Pick A Bale Of Cotton.' That song is about enjoying picking cotton and moonshine parties afterwards. It's from Dawson as are all the ring plays she knows, but there arer versions from Saint Simons, also. Words are pronounced differently in Dawson and Saint Simons. Sanderee and Sangeri are the same thing.
