"Brown-Eyed Girl"
Contrary to Peter's assertion, Van Morrison did not "cut a more acceptable version." His record label merely edited in the lyrics from another section of the song to replace the line "makin' love in the green grass."
Submitted by: MikeM
"Brown Eyed Girl"
In 1967, radio programmers pass on this Van Morrison song because the lyrics reference premarital sex and teenage pregnancy. Morrison cuts an alternative version with more acceptable lyrics.
