"Look At Them Beans"
A
This time last year there sure was
                                     E
A lot of sad faces around this old house

Our papa died without fulfilling' his life's dream
                                                A
Of producing one of the best crops in Grimes County

Though papa died with that dream still in his head
                                         E
A desire in his heart, a promise on his lips, calluses on both hands
                         A
And two dollars in his pocket
                                                      E
Papa didn't live long enough to see his dreams come true
                                                 A
So he died from too much work, broken spirit, I guess

But I promised our mama that if it was a last thing he'd ever do
      E                                                 A
He'd live long enough to see just one good crop come through
                                                    E
But you see we can't plan on things without first talking to God
                            A
Because we don't know his plans
                                 E                             A
And if we don't include him my friends the way can get mighty hard
                D
They say that every time a good and righteous person
                                                            A
Is buried in God's good earth it's just fertilizer for the soil
                                         E
And I guess there must be some truth to that
                          A
Whether we believe it or not
                                      E
I just wish that papa was here right now
                                      E              A
So that he could see this good crop that we finally got
CHORUS:
 A                                         E
Hey look at that beans and look at that corn
                                               A
And I bet them watermelons must be three feet long
                    D                       A
Man look at them tomatoes and look at them peas
         E                                                    A-------0---|
Well I know if papa was here right now he'd sure be pleased   E-0-2-4-----|





     A
And papa would sure be proud of his children too
                                                 E
My brother's famous now got his own show on the road

Traveling in customized bus imported from Europe
                                                 A
That boy always did love music and he loves to travel


I got a sister that's got a good job in a beauty shop
                             E
Making money, making other people look good
                                             A
Ain't nobody here at a house now but me and mama
                                                        E
And mama she's gettin' weaker and she's gettin' older every day

                                                         A
And she talks softly about joinin' papa in his heavenly home

But that woman sure did love that man
                                            E
She worked beside papa for forty some odd years
                                                             A
Tryin' to produce a good crop and never could grow a single bean
                                    D
But I just wish that papa was here right now
                           E           A
To see this good crop that we finally got

CHORUS:
 A                                       E
Hey look at that beans and look at that corn
                                               A
And I bet them watermelons must be three feet long
                    D                       A
Man look at them tomatoes and look at them peas
         E
Well I know if papa was here right now he'd sure be pleased
                                                 A-2b----|
And papa, if you can hear me look at them beans  E----0--|
