Take An Old Cold Tater And Wait
Recorded by Little Jimmie Dickens
written by E.M. Bartlett

C                       F                   C
When I was a little boy around the table at home
                            D7            G7
I remember fairly well when company would come
C                                F                   C
I would have to be right still until the whole crowd ate
                               G7               C
My mamma always said to me Jim take a tater and wait
 
                 F     C             F              C
Now taters never did taste good with chicken on the plate
                     D7       G7
But I had to eat 'em just the same
C                             F               C
That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways
                                G7                 C
Because I always had to take an old cold tater and wait
 
Repeat #2

                                          F                 C
And then the preachers they would come to stay a while with us
                                D7             G7
I would have to slip around and raise a little fuss
   C                                    F             C
In fear that I would spill the beans or break a china plate
                               G7               C
My mamma always said to me Jim take a tater and wait

                                              F                  C
Well I thought that I would starve to death before my time would come
                                    D7                G7
All that chicken they would eat and just leave me the bun
    C                                    F              C
The feet and neck were all that was left upon the china plate
                                        G7                 C
It makes ya pretty darn weak to take an old cold tater and wait

Repeat #2
