    What the name of this song-

    I know somone told me before, but I've been searching and can't find it!

    "plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches, you'll all find Jesus on your own"

    ahhh, it's driving me insane!
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    It scares me that the new guy knew that right away...

    It scares me even more that Donk knows of alternate versions of the song...

    I did not know John Denver did the song.

    When I get home, I'll check who wrote the song as I have the John Prine Album with it on it.

    Thats slightly worse.

    So then it would be really bad if I'm downloading it and burning it onto a cd for my sister?

    The "new guy" is a trivia enthusiast, who is even occassionally gives the right anwer. I'll put it this way: You don't want me as your Trivial Pursuit partner!

    Spanish Pipedream (AKA Blow Up Your TV)


    She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
    And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
    Well she pressed her chest against me
    About the time the juke box broke
    Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
    And these are the words she spoke

    Chorus:
    Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
    Go to the country, build you a home
    Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
    Try an find Jesus on your own

    Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
    For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
    Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
    Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do

    Repeat chorus:

    Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
    When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
    I said "You must know the answer."
    "She said, "No but I'll give it a try."
    And to this very day we've been livin' our way
    And here is the reason why

    We blew up our T.V. threw away our paper
    Went to the country, built us a home
    Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
    They all found Jesus on their own

    yup, that's it, and I'm shakin' my groove thing now!
