The Lyrics

Some of you might have heard this song on the Andy Griffith Show. Moonshine whiskey isn't the big hairy deal it used to be, so I thought it might be time to give this old standard an update.
Doobie was this stoner guy
Who lived across the street
Doobie had some grow bulbs
And a basement full o weed

Doobie cured 'em proper
He wasted not an ounce
Doobie made good brownies
And he freely passed 'em out

Doobie -- harmless li'l stoner
Doobie -- tried to cure glaucoma
Doobie -- eased a lotta chemo, but
They burned his stash, today

The DEA caught wind o Doob,
Came bustin' through his door
Ol' Doobie didn't fight 'em cuz
He's not the fightin' sort

Doobie was a healer
He loved to share his bud
He kept a little for himself
The rest he used for good

Doobie -- shackles and a collar
Doobie -- never charged a dollar
Doobie -- needed a lawyer
Cuz they hauled his ass away

The judge who sentenced Doobie had
Two cases to decide
The rapist got probation
But the judge gave Doobie five.

Now, Doobie's in the pokey
He sits there all alone
But all the folks that Doobie helped
Make sure he's always stoned

Doobie -- never hurt a soul, well
Doobie's -- rottin' in a jail cell
Doobie -- keepin' it mellow
And we'll pay him back, some way.

I don't really know this song but it was very well done, esp. the judge verse. Great job!

Thanks Claude, I appreciate it. :) I thought a lot of people would know this one from its frequent re-run exposure, guess not.

I've had the "original" (version from Andy Griffith show) stuck in my head all day (don't know how or why - it's been some time since I've seen it), and was looking for info on the song when I stumbled onto this. GREAT. Really enjoyed the re-write.
