"Homegrown Tomatoes" as written by and Guy Clark....
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
Lord, get you a ripe one; don't get a hard 'un
Plant 'em in the spring, 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

[Chorus]
Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What'd life be without home grown tomatoes?
There's only two things that money can't buy:
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

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

[Chorus]

If I could change this life I lead
I could be 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 cemetery
Put me out in the garden would be much better
Hell, I could be pushin' up a home grown tomatoes

[Chorus]
