Mickey Newbury - "A Weed Is A Weed" lyrics

A Weed Is A Weed

Ah when I was a boy
I was wild I was lazy
I was the shame of my Dad
Yes the women and the wine
They were drivin' me crazy
It was so good to be bad

And I got a job
Runnin' cheap bootleg whiskey
Down on the Arkansas line
From Memphis to Pine Bluff
in a hopped up ole Jimmy
I had to be out of my mind

Well you'll know the crop
By the seeds that I sow
Do all your plantin' with care
Water and ground
Will make anything grow
But a weeds still a weed anywhere

I met a girl
In a bar down in Memphis
She was the good lookin' kind
She told me
How she was drawn to the misfits
Trouble was all I did find

Ah when I was a boy
I was wild I was lazy
I was the shame of my Dad
Oh the women and the wine
They were drivin' me crazy
But it was so good to be bad

Yes and you'll know the crop
By the seeds that I sow
Do all your plantin' with care
Water and ground
Will make anything grow
But a weeds is a weed anywhere

Yes well you'll know the crop
By the seeds that I sow
Do all your plantin' with care
Water and ground
Will make anything grow
But a weeds still a weed anywhere

Yes it is...
