A. Pindar, Esq., 1866
Sitting by the roadside on a summer day,|
Chatting with my messmates, passing time away,
Lying in the shadow underneath the trees,
Goodness, how delicious, eating Goober Peas!
Peas! peas! peas! peas! eating Goober Peas!
Goodness how delicious, eating Goober Peas!
2. When a horseman passes, the soldiers have a rule,
3. Just before the battle the Gen'ral hears a row,|
He says, "The Yanks are coming, I hear their rifles now."
He turns around in wonder, and what do you think he sees?
The Georgia Militia - eating Goober Peas!
4. I think my song has lasted almost long enough,
