Chorus 1:

 Come on boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Gotta get her outta there.

 Come on boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Mama says it just ain't fair.

Interlude:

G  Em  D

Verse 1:

D                       G
 One night mama went to fetch,
Us up a sweet potato,
A                     D
 Fell down the cellar stairs.
           D
The cellar stairs.

D
 Stork dropped in,
      G
While she was on the floor,
      A                    D
So my sister was born down there.

Bridge 1:

A
 Daddy says this'n,
        D
Will be nothin' but a misery,
G              D       A
 Never will be worth a damn.

D
 But mama just loved,
           G
Her little sweet, Potato baby,
       A                     D
With a face like a parboiled yam.

Chorus 2:

D
 Come on boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Gotta get her outta there.

 Come on boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Mama says it just ain't fair.

G  Em  D

Verse 2:

D
 Potato grew up,
         G
To be as pretty as a peach,
       A
In her calico and,
             D
Honey yellow curls.

D
 Went to he apple cider ball,
At the arm'ry,
     A
With all the other,
               D
Ripe and ready girls.

A
 Sheriff Dan Pike,
          D
Picked Po-tato for the polka,
        G
But she spurned him,
       D         A
With a fiddle de-dee.

       D
And be-fore she,
Could turn around,
    G
And find another partner,
        A                   D
Sheriff took her into custo-dy.

Chorus 3:

Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Mama says it just ain't fair.

D
 Mama'n' daddy put together,
G
 Quite a little posse,
         A
Countin' me and Jack,
           D
And cousin Will.

   D
We all hopped into,
    G
The old Chevy pickup,
       A
And we caught 'em at,
               D
The top of the hill.

Bridge 3:

A
 Daddy took his Remington,
    D
And shot away the lock,

For to set his little darlin' free.

       D
But Po-tato said:
(n.c)
 "Daddy, shut the gol-dern door,
A                       D
 Sheriff wants to marry me!"

 Let's go boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Guess we better leave her there.

 Let's go boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Mama says it just ain't fair.

 Let's go boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
Guess we better leave her there.

 Let's go boys,
Potato's in the paddy wagon,
