Peach Picking Time in Georgia

Peach Picking Time in Georgia
           C                     C7      F[E+1                       C
When it's peach picking time in Georgia, apple picking time in Tennessee
 G7                        C  a  D7                  G
Cotton picking time in Mississippi, everybody picks on me
           C                         F[E+1        E
When it's roundup time in Texas the cowboys make whoopee
      F              C A       D7[C7+2    G7[E+2 C
Then down in old Alabama it's gal picking time to me
               C           G7
C
REFRAIN: yodel ay-hee o, olay-hee o, olay-hee.

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 picking underneath the Ozark moon.
REFRAIN: yodel ay-hee o, olay-hee o, olay-hee.

Now when hard times overtake you, I hope they don't get me
For I've got a sweetie 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
REFRAIN: yodel ay-hee o, dee yodel ay-hee o, dee yodel ay-hee.

When the pickaninnies pick the cotton, 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 picking time in Georgia, it's gal picking time to me
REFRAIN: yodel ay-hee o, dee yodel ay-hee o, dee yodel ay-hee.
