“Wildwood Weed”

(As recorded by Jim Stafford)
JIM STAFFORD
DON BOWMAN

Wildwood flower grew wild on the farm
And we never knowed what it was called
Some said it was a flower and some said it was a weed
I didn’t give it much thought
One day I was out there talkin’ to my brother
And I reached down for a weed to chew on
Things got fuzzy and things got blurry
And then ev’rything was gone
Didn’t know what happened but I knew it beat the hell
Out of sniffing burlap

I come to and my brother was there and he said,
“What’s wrong with your eyes?”
I said “I don’t know, I was chewin’ on the weed”
He said, “Let me give it a try”
We spent the rest of that day and most of that night tryin’
To find my brother Bill
Caught up with him about six o’clock the next mornin’
Naked, singing on the windmill
He said he flew up there
I had to fly up and get him down
He was about half crazy

The very next day we picked a bunch of them weeds
And put ’em in the sun to dry
Then we mashed ’em up and we cleaned ’em off
Put ’em in the corn cob pot
Smokin’ them wildwood flowers got to be a habit
We never seen no harm
We thought it was kind-a handy
Take a trip and never leave the farm
Big ‘ole puff of that wildwood weed next thing you know
You’re just wand’ring ’round behind the little animals

All good things got to come to an end
It’s the same with the wildwood weeds
One day this feller from Washington come by
And spied one and turned white as a sheet
And they dug and they burned
And they burned and they dug and they killed
All our cute little weeds and then they drove away
We just smiled and waved sittin’ ther on that sack o’ seeds

“Y’all come back now, y’hear!”
