Little Jimmy Dickens - Take an Old Cold Tater (And Wait) Lyrics
Take An Old Cold 'tater, performed by Little Jimmie Dickens
When I was A little boy around the table athome.
I remember fairly well when[A]Company would come.
Iwould have to be right still untill the whole crowd ate.
My mamma always said to me Jim t ake a tater andwait.
Now taters never did taste good with chicken on theplate.
But i had to eat 'em just the same.
That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways.
because I always had to take an o ld cold tater and wait.
And then the preachers they would come
To stay a while with us.
I would have to simp around
and raise a little fuss
In fear that I would spill the beans
or break a china plate
My mamma always said to me bJim take a tater and wait.
Well i thought that I would starve to death
Before my time would come.
All that chicken they would eat
And just leave me the butt.
The feet and neck were all that was left
Upon the china plate.
It makes ya pretty darn weak
To take an old cold tater and wait.
[Thanks to John Geoghegan for lyrics]
