"The Farm" as written by John Lee Batdorf and Mark Rodney....
Bought myself a farm way out in the country
Took to growin lettuce milkin cows and honey
Bought myself a farm (way out in the country)
Bought myself a farm way out in the country
Spent time in the hayloft with the mice and the bunnies
Spent time in the country
Yes it's good livin on the farm
Ah so good livin on the farm
Yes it's good livin on the farm
Here comes my next door neighbour comin down the road
He always looks so regal ridin on his toad named Lightnin
The toad's name is Lightnin he's ten hands at the shoulder
And if you give him sugar you know he'll whinny like a boulder
Yes he will
Well I gotta get back to work now and clear away some logs
Ah the sun is shinin westwards yeah I think I'll saddle up my frog and
Get outta here

    General CommentA rather sarcastic, tongue in cheek look at the growing "back to nature" movement that started in the late sixties. People started moving out of the cities and into the country with their new found perspective on things (Frogs and toads instead of horses and mules, boulders that whinny, you get the picture.).

    General CommentJerry Garcia played the slide guitar for this part. For those of you didn't know that, I bet it's deadly obvious now, isn't it, ha
