Pickin' Wild Mountain Berries

This song is by Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn and appears on the album We Only Make Believe (1971).

Where you been, where you been
It's the same ole question again
What's the use baby, what's the use
They ain't never gonna turn us loose

You got dirt all over your face
And your lipstick is way out of place
Oh, we gonna tell 'em
What we tell 'em every time before

They won't leave us alone
They want us to come home
We been busy makin' merries
And pickin' wild mountain berries

We're pickin' wild mountain berries
That's our excuse every time
We've been busy makin' merries
And pickin' wild mountain berries

Conway, I don't know. Loretta, I don't know
If I can keep honey, from lettin' it show
What's our plan, tell me what's our plan
Now you know they won't understand

If my hair is a drippin' wet
And my clothes are soakin' wet
And we didn't go skinny dippin'
In a cement pond

You're my baby, you're my man
And though your hair is sure gettin' to be a mess
And there ain't no berries in your bucket
Now we'll explain it honey, as best as we can

They won't leave us alone
They want us to come home
We been a busy makin' merries
And pickin' wild mountain berries

We're pickin' wild mountain berries
That's our excuse every time
We been a busy makin' merries
And pickin' wild mountain berries...
