I'm a pick- er,  I'm a strum -mer,  Play my ban - jo ev - ry day.
Plink, plink, plunk, plunk,  Love to hear a ban - jo play.
Pick the notes and strum the chords and play the rhy - thm as we may,
List - en to the ban - jo sing a song and here it say:
Come and strum a - long with me,  That's the way we play.
Lis - ten to the har - mo - ny,  As we pick our song a- way.
An- y time,  In any year,  I love A Banjo in my ear,
Plink, plink, plunk - ing all those nice old songs I love to hear.
