Intentionally or not, the writers of this Elvis track seem to have been at the very least inspired by the old slave song, "Pick A Bale O' Cotton." The origins of the song are uncertain and there seems to be no reference of it before the 1930s. In December 1933, the folklorist John Lomax, as part of his field recordings, recorded the convict James "Iron Head" Baker performing a version of the number. That recording was released in 1997 on the Document Records CD, "Field Recordings Vol. 13."
