Homegrown Tomatoes   Guy Clark





Here are the words and chords to Homegrown Tomatoes:

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:
Two love and home grown tomatoes.
1.  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
Pick you a ripe one, don't get a hard 'un.
Plant 'em in the springtime 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

2.
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

3.
If I could change this life I lead,
You could call me 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 cold dark cemetery
Out in the garden would be much better 
Where I could be pushin up those home grown tomatoes.

There's only two things that money can't buy:
       V7
True love and homegrown tomatoes.

There's nothin in the world that I like better
            I
Than bacon and lettuce and homegrown tomatoes
       IV
Up in the morning out in the garden

Pick you a ripe one, don't bet a hard 'un

Good luck and have fun.
