|G / / / |C / G / | When it's peach pickin' time in Georgia - apple pickin' time in Tennes-see, D / E / |A / D / Cotton pickin' time in Mississippi - everybody picks on me, |G / / / |C / B7 / | When it's roundup time in Texas - and the cowboys make whoopee, C / G E Am D G / Then down in old Ala-bama - it's gal pickin' time to me. |G / D / |G / / / | Deo-de-layee-o, de-layee-o, de-layee.


There's the bluegrass down in Kentucky, Virginia's where they do the swing, Carolina now I'm coming, to you to spend the spring. Arkansas I hear you calling, I know I'll see you soon, There's where I'll do a little pickin', underneath the Ozark moon. Deo-delayee-o, delayee-o, delayee.


Now, when hard times overtake you, I hope they don't get me, For I've got a sweety waiting, for me down in Tennessee. I know I'm going to see her, I hope it won't be long, There's where we'll pick a little cabin and call it our mountain home. Deo-delayee-o, delayee-o, delayee.


When the cotton pickers pick the cotton, that's when I'll pick a wedding ring, We'll go to town and pick a little gown, for the wedding in the Spring. I hope the preacher knows his business, I know he can't fool me, When it's peach pickin' time in Georgia, it's gal pickin' time to me. Deo-delayee-o, delayee-o, delayee.
