PICKIN' TIME
Words and music by Johnny Cash

CAPO: 1st Fret/KEY: C#/PLAY: C/[NC] [S=Strum]

[S/C] I got cotton in the [S/G7] bottom land.
It's up and growin' and I [S/C] got a good stand.
My good wife and them [S/G7] kids of mine,
Gonna get new shoes, come [S/C] pickin' time,
[G7] Get new shoes come [C] pickin' time.

[C] Ev'ry night when I [G7] go to bed,
I thank the Lord that my [C] kids are fed.
They live on beans eight [G7] days and nine,
But I'll get 'em fat come [C] pickin' time,
[G7] Get 'em fat come come [C] pickin' time.

The corn is yellow and the beans are high.
The sun is hot in the summer sky.
The work is hard till layin' by,
Layin' by till pickin' time,
Layin' by till pickin' time.

It's hard to see by the coal-oil light,
And I turn it off purty early at night,
A jug of coal-oil costs a dime,
But I'll 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.

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."


Note: Last verse played same as first verse.
