Pickin' Time Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '58 Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP / Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

I got cotton in the bottom land it's up and growin' and I got a good stand
My good wife and them kids of mine gonna get new shoes come pickin' time
Get new shoes come pickin' time
Every night when I go to bed I thank the Lord that my kids are fed
They live on beans eight days in nine but I get 'em fat come pickin' time
Got 'em fat come pickin' time
The corn is yellow and my beans're 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 coaloil light and I took it off pretty early at night
Cause a jug of coaloil 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
Last Sunday morning 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 till pickin' time
The Lord'll wait till pickin' time
