Subject: RE: Weed songs
From: The Crazy Bird
Date: 02 Mar 01 - 03:00 PM

Dear Hearts,

How cool, so many songs I had forgotten, and even more I never heard of!

I was planning on asking why nobody thought of "Rainy Day Women..." -- but Grab came through...

So, I'll just mention a line Brother Dave Gardner (the comedian guy Fox got the idea for his Redneck motif from) had in his outrageous story about "Charles and Sue".

These two sweet kids are in the restaurant about to leave and Sue says, "Let's blow this joint!

Charles says, "No, pass it on to the waitress...!"

And them southern audience people, ya know they laffed!

Sooooooo, they been growing more than okra and green beans, back in the '50's...

Subject: Lyr Add: REEFER MAN
From: GUEST,Wendy
Date: 02 Mar 01 - 02:34 PM

I've always enjoyed Cab Calloway's "Reefer Man", because it's just so goofy. I think Don Redman did it too. I found the lyrics below at this site , which seems to be a list of drug related songs and their lyrics.

There's also this site, posted by the Indiana Prevention Resource Center at Indiana University: SOURCES OF OLD-TIME DRUG MUSIC .


THE REEEFER MAN
(sung by Cab Calloway)

Oh, have you ever met that funny reefer man?
Oh, have you ever met that funny reefer man?
If he says he swam to China:
He sell you South Carolina
Then you know you're talking to that reefer man.

Have you ever met that funny reefer man?
Have you ever met that funny reefer man?
If he says he walks the ocean
Every time he takes the notion
Then you know you're talking to that reefer man.

Have you ever met a funny reefer man?
Have you ever met a funny reefer man?
If he takes a sudden mania
Wants to give you Pennsylvania
Then you know you're talking to that reefer man.


The site omitted my favorite verse, which as I recall it, goes:

Have you ever met that funny reefer man?
Have you ever met that funny reefer man?
If he trades you dimes for nickels
And calls watermelons pickles,
Then you know you're talking to that reefer man.

Plant'em in the holler up on Copperhead Road

From: Les from Hull
Date: 02 Mar 01 - 12:15 PM

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
Les

Subject: Lyr Add: YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS
From: catspaw49
Date: 02 Mar 01 - 12:08 PM

Here's one vaguely related but interesting in that the lyric was changed for the airplay version to "let's hit another joint" implying another bar, but the censor folks must have missed that with "hit" and "joint" together, it wasn't a big difference.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS ....Tom Petty

Let me run with you tonight
I'll take you on a moonlight ride
There's someone I used to see
But she don't give a damn for me

But let me get to the point, let's roll another joint
And turn the radio loud, I'm too alone to be proud
You don't know how it feels
You don't know how it feels to be me

People come, people go
Some grow young, some grow cold
I woke up in between
A memory and a dream

So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
Let's head on down the road
There's somewhere I gotta go
And you don't know how it feels
You don't know how it feels to be me

My old man was born to rock
He's still tryin' to beat the clock
Think of me what you will
I got a little space to fill

So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
Let's head on down the road
There's somewhere I gotta go
And you don't know how it feels
No, you don't know how it feels to be me

This my favorite one. By Ben Harper.

Burn One Down

Let us burn one
from end to end
and pass it over
to me my friend
burn it long, we'll burn it slow
to light me up before I go

if you don't like my fire
then don't come around
cause I'm gonna burn one down
yes I'm gonna burn one down

my choice is what I choose to do
and if I'm causing no harm
it shouldn't bother you
your choice is who you choose to be
and if your causin' no harm
then you're alright with me

if you don't like my fire
then don't come around
cause I'm gonna burn one down
yes I'm gonna burn one down

herb the gift from the earth
and what's from the earth
is of the greatest worth
so before you knock it try it first
you'll see it's a blessing
and not a curse

if you don't like my fire
then don't come around
cause I'm gonna burn one down
yes I'm gonna burn one down

You should all check out this great band from Austin, Texas called the Asylum Street Spankers. They play a mixture of styles from Western Swing, to Old Time, to Tin Pan Alley. They play all acoustic, no amps, no mics, just voices and acoustic instruments, and they sound great. Anyway, their last album, called "Spanker Madness" is basically all about beer and marijuana, both old songs and songs they wrote that sound old. Titles include "High as You can be," "Winning the War on Drugs," "Wake and Bake" "Knock Myself Out," "Amsterdam," "Gettin' High," and "It's Dry Down Here." They are downright hilarious. Check them out if you get a chance.

"I'm going south, to get that Acapulco Gold--ain't nothin' it can't fix (can't fix), old dogs can learn new tricks (new tricks) when the streets are lined with bricks of Acapulco Gold."..My poor old mental engine coughed twice and disgorged this. It was someone's attempt at a follow-up of their first hit and it GOT onto top forty, before being yanked. The name of the group will, no doubt, occur to me at about three A.M. tomorrow morning.

One Toke Over The Line
(Brewer & Shipley)
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Who do you love I hope it's me
I've been a changin' as you can plainly see
I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
If I should choose to make a part of me will surely strike me dead
And now I'm

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I sail away a country mile
And now I'm returning and showing off my smile
I met all the girls and I loved myself a few
And to my surprise
Like everything else that I've been through
It opened up my eyes
And now I'm

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

I was born to give and take
And as I keep growin' I'm gonna make some mistakes
The sun's gonna set and the bird is gonna wing they do not lie
My last wish will be just one thing
Be smilin' when I die
I wanna be

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
I wanna be
One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
One toke

DON'T BOGART THAT JOINT

Lyrics: Elliot Ingber
Music: Elliot Ingber

Played by Little Feat's Paul Barrere and Bill Payne with Phil & Friends. The original verson (on the soundtrack of "Easy Rider") was by Fraternity Of Man. It was subsequently covered by Little Feat.

Chorus:
Don't bogart that joint my friend
Pass it over to me
Don't bogart that joint my friend
Pass it over to me

Roll another one
Just like the other one
You've been holding on to it
And I sure will like a hit

[chorus]

Roll another one
Just like the other one
That one's burned to the end
Come on and be a real friend

So here you're not holdin you thought I was holdin
My dear what on earth will you do
Now you know when I'm holdin
there's no need you holdin
And you know the same about me
And if you run out before I run out
You know you could get some from me
But if you ain't got none and if I ain't got none
Let's go find some other hit
Find out if they're holdin, get down and start rollin
And smoke up their holdin instead

Some researcher has deduced from traces found in pipes in the garden of Shakespeare's house in Stratford that there was chemical asistance to the bard's works.
Following on from that, the same team that found the earliest attempt by the HFA to claim copyright of a traditional tune, have unearthed a hitherto unknown Shakespearian manuscript, extracts below:
"To be, and wow, man, like, you know, maybe not to be, whether 'tis nobler in the blown mind to suffer, man, how I suffer, (giggle) the slings and arrows, whoah, don't talk arrows, man they hurt, bad kharma.." and "'twas a lover and his groovy chick, man, with a no and hey nonny, nonny, nonny nonny nonny, (giggle) nonny, nonny ,nooooo, far out , man."

Panama Red

Lyrics: Peter Rowan
Music: Peter Rowan

Jerry played this in 1973 with Peter Rowan in Old And In The Way.

Panama Red, Panama Red
He'll steal your woman, then he'll rob your head
Panama Red, Panama Red
On his white horse, Mescalito
He come breezin' through town
I'll bet your woman's up in bed with
Panama Red

The judge don't know when Red's in town
He keeps well hidden underground
But everybody's acting lazy
Falling out and hangin' 'round

My woman said, "Hey Pedro
you're actin' crazy like a clown"
Nobody feels like working
Panama Red is back in town

[chorus]

Everybody's looking out for him
'Cause they know Red's satisfies
Little girls love to listen to him
Sing and tell sweet lies

But when things get too confusing, honey
You're better off in bed
And I'll be searching all the joints in town for
Panama Red

[chorus]

Recordings

1 Oct 1973 Breakdown (Old And In The Way)
8 Oct 1973 Old And In The Way

Peter Rowan recorded this in 1978 on "Peter Rowan." The New Riders recorded it on "The Adventures Of Panama Red" and a number of other albums (including a backward version on "Before Time Began"!).

There's 'La Cucuracha' (or however you spell it) It means something like:
The cockroach, the cockroach
He can't walk
Because he's not no marijuana to smoke.
Correct me if I'm barking up the wrong'un folks!
Also, on a lyrics search once, I got onto a 'Silly Lyrics' site. (Don't remember how to find it, suggestions welcome) and they had a song to the tune of 'The Monster Mash' called 'Monster Hash':
They smoked some hash(they smoked some monster hash)
They smoked some hash (from his personal stash)...and so on.

Date: 02 Mar 01 - 06:03 AM

While I do not advocate drug abuse of any form, I believe it's a crying shame that we have so many wonderful songs about alcohol (for and agin) but so few about marijuana. Heck, I can even think of more songs about opiates ("Willie the Weeper") and about cocaine than I can about pot! Well, I have done my best to remedy the situation. Please take note of the two songs that follow.

---------------------------

AMAZING GRASS

Words: Stephen L. Suffet © 1997, 2001
Music: "Amazing Grace" by John Newton

Amazing grass, how sweet the smoke,
To make a wretch like me,
I once was straight, but now I'm stoned,
I'm blind when once I could see.

Twas grass alone that made me so,
To idle away my time,
To waste my days in a smokey haze,
Twas amazing grass sublime.

And now I've pissed my life away,
And from this world shall pass,
I clear my throat, and prepare to smoke,
From Heaven's amazing grass.

Amazing grass, how sweet the smoke,
To make a wretch like me,
I once was straight, but now I'm stoned,
I'm blind when once I could see.

TANK OF ALUMINUM

Words: Stephen L. Suffet © 2001
Music: "Copper Kettle" by Albert F. Beddoe

Get you a tank of aluminum,
Aluminum or stainless steel,
Fill it with good plant nutrients,
And the seeds from your latest deal...

And you'll lie there watching videos,
Eating pizza day and night,
As your plants keep growing,
In the artificial light.

Buy your supplies with currency,
Never let down your guard,
Don't buy anything on the Internet,
Or pay with a credit card...

And you'll lie there watching videos,
Eating pizza day and night,
As your plants keep growing,
In the artificial light.

My daddy brought weed in from Mexico,
But that was way back then,
And maybe in a year or two,
He'll get out of the pen...

And you'll lie there watching videos,
Eating pizza day and night,
As your plants keep growing,
In the artificial light.
