STRIKE A MATCH AND LIGHT ANOTHER
(Jay Ungar)

In the first days of this country when the buffalo roamed the land
And the saddle tramps and cowboys used to roll their own by hand
They'd get up in the saddle of their mule or of their horse
And recite a little ditty that went like this of course

When your feet are in the stirrups and your ass is on the ground
'Cos the grass that he's been eating is the finest stuff around
So let us all remember boys, let us not forget
Strike a match and light another marijuana cigarette

You have heard of evil and you've heard of misery
And you've heard of Richard Nixon but you haven't heard of me
Well put them all together and think about what you gout
'Cos you won't be doing too much thinking now you've started smoking pot

You can smoke it, you can eat it, you can drink it with your beer
You can hang it all the wall or you can hang it from your ear
And if he's got the notion and if you've got the class
You can stuff it in your feedback and feed it to your ass.

Instead of Richard Nixon (which dates the song somewhat) I sing Slobodan Milosovitch (funny name, funny guy). Or you could replace it with the Mudcatter of your choice.

For anyone who remembers the 'Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers' there was a page with these words with illustrations by Gilbert Shelton featuring the Freak Brothers.

Peace, man
