Merle Haggard – Peach Picking Time In Georgia lyrics

When it's peach picking time in Georgia
Apple picking time in Tennessee
Cotton picking time in Mississippi
Everybody picks on me

When it's roundup time in Texas
The cowboys make whoopee
Then down in old Alabama
It's gal picking time for me

There's the bluegrass down in Kentucky
Virginia's where they do the swing
Carolina now I'm a coming to you
Coming to spend the spring

Arkansas I hear you calling
I know I'll see you soon
That's where we'll do some picking
Underneath the Ozark moon

Now when hard times overtake you
I hope they don't get me
For I've gotta a sweetie waiting
For me down at Tennessee

I know I'm goin' to see her
And I hope it won't be long
'Cos there's where we're picking little [incomprehensible]

Now after I've picked all my cotton
I pick a wedding ring
We'll go down town pick a wedding gown
For the wedding in the spring

Hope the preacher knows his business
I know he can't fool me
When it's peach picking time in Georgia
It's gal picking time to me
