Thumb Pick Pete Written and recorded by Jimmy Dean
C F Way out in the country where the friendly folks meet C G7 C You can usually find a fellow called Thumb Pick Pete F He's got a five string banjo pick on his thumb C G7 C And makes a lot of music with his pinka pang thumb
G7 They call him Thumb Pick Pete C Ain't that music sweet G7 Why don't you come on Pete C G7 C Yeah make a little music while we shuffle our feet
F Well he don't read a note but he never missed a beat C G7 C He just sits there picking for the shuffling feet
Well they don't pay him money F Cause his music ain't for sale C G7 C And a Dominicker chicken and a union scale
F When the moon is right and the night is still C G7 C Well the notes come a-ringin' off banjo hill F Ole Pete's got the five strings wound up tight C G7 C And he might keep pickin' till broad day light
F When they call ole Pete through the golden gates C G7 C Well I bet they gotta figure what'll be his fate F St Peter gonna greet him with a big wide grin C G7 C Sayin' pick up your banjo and come right in
