pickin time

Johnny Cash



 Spoken
 NCS:CS:G7
   I got cotton in the  bottom land
 S:C
It's up and growin' and I  got a good stand
 S:G7
My good wife and them  kids of mine
 S:C
Gonna get new shoes, come  Pickin' Time ...
 G7C
  Get new shoes come  Pickin' Time.
 CG7
  Ev'ry night when I  go to bed
 C
I thank the Lord that my  kids are fed
 G7
They live on beans eight  days and nine ...
 C
But I get 'em fat come  Pickin' Time
 G7C
  Get 'em fat come come  Pickin' Time.
The corn is yellow and the beans are high
The sun is hot in the summer sky
The work is hard til layin' by ...
Layin' by til Pickin' Time
Layin' by til Pickin' Time.
It's hard to see by the coal-oil light
And I turn it off purty early at night
'Cause a jug of coal-oil costs a dime ...
But I stay up late come Pickin' Time
Stay up late come Pickin' Time.
My old wagon barely gets me to town
I patched the wheels and I watered 'em down
Keep her in shape so she'll be fine ...
To haul my cotton come Pickin' Time
Haul my cotton come Pickin' Time.
 Spoken
  & Strum last verse same as first.
Last Sunday mornin' when they passed the hat
It was still nearly empty back where I sat
But the preacher smiled and said that's fine ...
The Lord'll wait til Pickin' Time
The Lord'll wait til Pickin' Time.
