Look at Them Beans Lyric

Johnny Cash Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Look at Them Beans This time last year there sure was a lot of sad faces around this old house

Our papa died without fullfillin' his life's dream

Of producing one of the best crops in Grimes County

Though papa died with that dream still in his head

A desire in his heart a promise on his lips callusess on both hands

And two dollars in his pocket

Papa didn't live long enough to see his dreams come true

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

He'd live long enough to see just one good crop come through

But you see we can't plan on things without first talking to God

Because we don't know his plans and if we don't include him my friends

The way can get mighty hard

They say that everytime a good and righteous person

Is buried in God's good earth it's just fortilizer for the soil

And I guess there must be some truth to that whether we believe it or not

I just wish that papa was here right now

So that he could see this good crop that we fin'ly got

Hey look at that beans and look at that corn

And I bet them watermelons must be three feet long

Man look at them tomatoes and look at them peas

Well I know if papa was here right now he'd sure be pleased

[ fiddle ]

And papa would sure be proud of his children too

My brother's famous now got his own show on the road

Traveling in customized bus imported from Europe

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

Making money making other people look good

Ain't nobody here at a house now but me and mama

And mama she's gettin' weaker and she's gettin' older every day

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

But that woman sure did love that man

She worked beside papa for forty some odd years

Tryin' to produce a good crop and never could grow a single bean

But I just wish that papa was here right now to see this good crop that we fin'ly got

Man look at that beans...

And papa if you can hear me look at them beans
