Peach Picking Time Down In Georgia

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album Same Train, a Different Time (1969) and on the album The Peer Sessions (2002).

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
And way on down in 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 to spend the spring

Arkansas I hear you calling
I know I'll see you soon
There's where we'll do a little picking
Underneath the Ozark moon

When all the pickers are picking the cotton
That's the time I pick a wedding ring
We'll go to the town to 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
