​Homegrown Tomatoes

This song is by John Denver and appears on the album Higher Ground (1989).

There ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
Than bacon 'n' lettuce 'n' homegrown tomatoes
Up in the mornin', out in the garden
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 is a culinary bummer
I forgot all about the sweatin' and the diggin'
Everytime I go out and pick me a big un

Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

You can go out to eat, that's for sure
But there's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
Put 'em in a salad, put 'em in a stew
You can make your own very own tomato juice

Eat 'em with eggs, eat 'em with gravy
Eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy
Put 'em on the side, put 'em in the middle
Homegrown tomato on a hot cake griddle

Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

If I's to change this life I lead
You'd call me Johnny Tomatoseed
'Cause I know what this country needs
Homegrown tomatoes 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
'Cause I could get a-pushin' with the homegrown tomatoes

Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

Homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things money cannot buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes
