Cotton Pickin' Time  Blake Shelton

On a [C]Mississippi mornin’
My [F]dad yelled out a [C]warnin’
Son you better hit that [G]cotton patch [C]soon
And on my way on down the field
[F]As I passed Old [C]Johnson’s Mill
I saw Becky Morgan, [G]skinny dippin’ [C]nude.

Well I [C]couldn’t help but stop and stare
[F]Hypnotized I [C]stood right there
Enchanted by the beauty that I’d seen
Then she gave me a come here smile
[F]Nearly drove my [C]body wild
I fell down [G]tryin’ to kick off my [C]jeans.

Chorus:
Well on that [C]cotton pickin’ [C/G]mornin’
I met [F]up with Beck [C]Morgan
You know that day I didn’t get to work on time
And in the days of my [C/G]December
I [F]know I will [C]remember
Sowin’ oats at [G]Cotton Pickin’ [C]Time.

Well I [C]lost my job that summer
But I [F]guess I had it [C]comin’
Cause that pickin’ cotton just wasn’t on my mind
But you don’t get too much money
When you [F]got a Tupelo [C]honey
Keepin’ you cool in the [G]Mississippi hot sun[C]shine.


Chorus:
And every [C]cotton pickin’ [C/G]mornin’
I met [F]up with Becky [C]Morgan
The whole dang I never got to work on time
And in the days of my [C/G]December
I [F]know I will [C]remember
Sowin’ oats at [G]Cotton Pickin’ [C]Time.

[C]  [F]  [C]  [G]  [C]  [F]  [C]  [G]  [C]                     
We’ve [C]come along way since then
Now I own that cotton gin
And I bought that mill
[G]Just to make her [C]smile
And to keep our love from growin’ old
We [F]still go down there [C]to that hole
Skinny dip and [G]Becky is just as [C]wild.

Chorus:
And every [C]cotton pickin’ [C/G]mornin’
I wake [F]up with Becky [C]Morgan
And to this day I never got to work on time
And in the days of our [C/G]December
I [F]know we’ll will [C]remember
Sowin’ oats at [G]Cotton Pickin’ [C]Time.
(2x)

We were sowin’ oats at [G]Cotton Pickin’ [C]Time
We were sowin’ oats at [G]Cotton Pickin’ [C]Time.
