K:D [D]Sitting by the road-side [G]on a summer's [D]day, [D]Chatting with my mess-mates, [Em]passing time a-[A]way, [D]Lying in the shadow, [G]underneath the trees, [D]Goodness, how de-[G]licious, [D]eating [A]goober [D]peas. {i}Chorus:{/i} {i}[D]Peas! Peas! [G]Peas! Peas! [A]Eating goober [D]peas.{/i} {i}[D]Goodness, how de-[G]licious, [D]eating [A]goober [D]peas!{/i} [D]When a horse-man passes, the [G]soldiers have a [D]rule, [D]To cry out their loudest, - [Em]"Mister, here's your [A]mule!" [D]But another pleasure, en-[G]chanting-er than these Is [D]wearing out your [G]grinders, [D]eating [A]goober [D]peas. {i}(Chorus){/i} [D]Just before the battle, the [G]General hears a [D]row; [D]He says "The Yanks are coming, [Em]I hear their rifles [A]now". He [D]turns around in wonder, and [G]what do you think he sees? The [D]Georgia [G]Militia - [D]eating [A]goober [D]peas. {i}(Chorus){/i} I [D]think my song has lasted [G]almost long [D]enough. The [D]subject's interesting, but [Em]rhymes are mighty [A]rough. I [D]wish this war was over, when [G]free from rags and fleas, We'd [D]kiss our wives and [G]sweethearts, and [D]gobble [A]goober [D]peas. {i}(Chorus){/i}
