Take An Old Cold 'tater, performed by Little Jimmie Dickens


When I was A little boy around the table at home.
I remember very well when Company would come.
I would have to be right still until the whole crowd ate.
My mama always said to me Jim take a tater and wait.

(2)
Now taters never did taste good with chicken on the plate.
But I had to eat 'em just the same.
That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways.
cause I always had to take an old cold tater and wait.

(3)
And then the preachers they would come
To stay a while with us.
I would have to slip around
and raise a little fuss
In fear that I would spill the beans
or break a china plate
My mama always said to me Jim take a tater and wait.

(repeat 2)

(4)
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 bun.
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.

(repeat 2)
