First Verse:
Sitting by the roadside on a summer day,
Chatting with my mess mates passing time away,
Lying in the shadow underneath the trees,
Goodness how delicious, eating goober peas.
 
Second Verse:
Just before the battle, The General hears a row,
He says, "The Yanks are coming I hear their rifles now."
He turns around in wonder, And what do you think he sees?
The Georgia Militia, Eating goober peas!
 
Chorus:
Peas, peas, peas, peas, Eating goober peas.
Goodness how delicious eating goober peas.
Peas, peas, peas, peas, Eating goober peas.
Goodness how delicious eating goober peas.
