Charley Pride Best Banjo Picker Lyrics

Last updated:

I didn't think too much about books and schoolin'
Cause there are more important things to do
I'd just sit out in the yard and pick my ol' banjo
Tryin' to do what the big hillbillies do
I would sit there by the hour pickin' Wildwood Flower
Wore my little fingers to the bone
I said I'll never rest till I am the very best
The best banjo picker in this whole country
[ banjo ]
I said someday I know I'll win my fame one day all the world will know my name
I'll work so very hard with that ol' banjo tryin' to do what the big hillbillies do
I would sit there all alone tryin' to pick out Home Sweet Home
While evrybody played out in the yard
I said I'll never stop till I've reached the very top
When I'm the best banjo picker in this whole country
[ banjo ]
Well the years have passed I haven't change my mind I still pick the banjo all the time
Because I know someday I'm bound to learn to play all the things the big hillbillies do
I just sit here in my shop pickin' Foggy Mountain Top tellin' everybody help theirselves
Cause before I go to rest I'm gonna be the very best
The best banjo picker in this whole country
(I'm gonna learn how to play this thing
I'm gonna play the banjo just like Sonny Osborne yes sir Sonny I'm gonna learn)
