Always had the best homegrown
Grew it out on County Road 886
We'd sit and talk and listen to Neil Young

In the middle of a corn field
Was the crop that kept them alive
Wasn't controlled by a banker
On Wall Street trying to make a dime

They kept the county stoned as hell
In 77' ooh that smell
A stranglehold on the county drug trade
But, all good things must come to an end

Barns full of old combines and old tractors
Thirty year old beer cans line the walls of the shed
And George Straight plays on an old radio on a bench

They didn't own enough land to compete with the corporations
So they started growing more green
The county got eyes in the sky in 93'

A Firebird with T-tops burned down the blacktop
They found him upside down still listening to ZZ Top
Red and blue lights shining on the trees
He learned a hard lesson, but he never gave up growing weed
