Goober Peas Confederate and Union Civil War Song Lyrics
by A. Pinder
Soldiers for both sides of the Civil War found that singing could help pass the time and relieve stress. The following song became popular during that time and is still sung "for fun" in classrooms or around campfires. And by the way, Goober Peas are peanuts.
Sitting by the roadside on a summer's day Chatting with my mess-mates, passing time away Lying in the shadows underneath the trees Goodness, how delicious,
eating goober peas.
Just before the battle, the General hears a row He says "The Yanks are coming, I hear their rifles now."
He looks down the roadway, and what d'ya think he sees? The Georgia Militia cracking goober peas.
I think my song has lasted just
about enough. The subject is interesting, but the rhymes are mighty rough. I wish the war was over, so free from rags and fleas We'd kiss our wives and sweethearts, say good-bye to goober peas.
