Home Grown Tomatoes (Guy Clark) cho: Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes, What'd life be without home grown Tomatoes, There's only two things that money can't buy: True love and home grown tomatoes. There's nothin' in the world that I like better than Bacon, lettuce and home grown tomatoes Up in the morning and out in the garden Pick you a ripe one, don't get a hard 'un. Plant 'em in the springtime eat 'em in the summer, All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer. I forget all about the sweatin and the diggin Every time I go out and pick me a big'un. You can go out and eat'em that's for sure, But there's nothin a home grown tomato won't cure You can put em in a salad, put em in a stew You can make your own, your very own tomato juice You can eat em with eggs, you can eat em with gravy You can eat em with beans, pinto or navy Put em on the side, put em on the middle Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle If I could change this life I lead, You could call me Johnny Tomato Seed I know what this country needs, It's home grown tomatoes in every yard you see When I die don't bury me In a box in a cold dark cemetery Out in the garden would be much better Where I could be pushin up those home grown tomatoes.
