Johnny Cash and June Carter – Long Legged Guitar Pickin’ Man Lyrics

Well I’m gonna start out walkin’
Just you wait and see
Uh-huh guitar picker
You ain’t leavin’ without me

Oh you big mouth woman
You long legged guitar pickin’ man
But we can work this out uh huh
Yes ma’m I think we can

Well I stole the Hope diamond
Hopin’ I could shut your mouth
But how am I gonna wear it
If I got to hide it out

Well you big mouth woman
You long legged guitar pickin’ man
But we can work this out uh huh
Yes ma’m I think we can

Well I bought you a first class ticket
For a luxury liner cruise
I got out in that ocean
looked around and there was you

Oh you big mouth woman
You long legged guitar pickin’ man
But we can work this out uh huh
Yes ma’m I think we can

I bought you a big long limousine
But I don’t want no car
I gave my love and everything
But you’re still what you are

You’re just a big mouth woman
You long legged guitar pickin’ man
But we can work this out uh huh
Yes ma’m I think we can

Oh honey I love that big sweet mouth
You a long legged guitar pickin’ man
Ha ha I’m gonna pick it for you
Now you a nice guitar pickin’ man
