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!

John Denver, "Blow Up Your TV"
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?

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! :)
