GOOBER PEAS

A.Pindar / P.Nutt / 1866
    D                      G              D 
1/ Sitting by the roadside on a summer’s day
                                E             A
   Chatting with my mess-mates passing time away
    D                   G                D
   Lying in the shadows underneath the trees
                          A7             D
   Goodness how delicious eating goober peas

      D                       G             D
Ref: Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating goober peas
                             E             A7
     Goodness how delicious eating goober peas
      D                       G             D
     Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating goober peas
                             A7            D
     Goodness how delicious eating goober peas

2/ When a horse-man passes, the soldiers have a rule
   To cry out their loudest: Mister, here’s your mule!
   But another custom, enchanting-er than these
   Is wearing out your grinders, eating goober peas

Ref: Peas...

3/ Just before the battle, the General hears a row
   He says: The Yanks are coming, I hear their rofles now.
   He looks down the roadway and what d’you think he sees
   The Georgia Militia eating goober peas

Ref: Peas...

4/ I think my song has lasted almost long enough
   The subject’s interesting but the rhymes are mighty rough
   I wish this war was over so free from rags and fleas
   We’d kiss our wives and sweethearts, and gobble goober peas
