The Lyrics

Amazing Grass, how sweet the puff
That fills my lungs for free
There is no charge to smoke this stuff,
Some dude, he shares with me

Amazing Grass, 'Tis short but strong
Columbian, I know
It won't stay lit, don't last too long,
Inhale, hold in, and blow

This grass will teach my lungs to breathe,
Good grass with beer, enjoyed
How fortunate my friend bequeathed
Since I am un-employed

There are some dangers, like vice cops
So don't turn on the dome
With grass I have been safe, why stop?
Just never smoke at home

This bud looks awf'lly good to me,
Won't drop it on the floor
We'll alternate what portions be,
Until there is no more

Now as the embered roach grows short
We'll burn our fingers not
I'll say so long, and thank you Sport...
That really was good pot

I'm no fan of pro-drug stuff but since it's only a parody and I did find this to be a good read I'll say it's okeydokey anyway. :-)

Thanks Know 1...just for the record...this was not, in any way, meant to encourage or advocate the smoking of marijuana...strictly authored as hopefully, humorous sarcasm

Good job, AFW. Medical marijuana could be God's gift to many suffering patients if only certain political interests would get out of its way.

I gave it up quite a while ago although in my recent travels at one point I was handed a "J" sort of out of reflex by an old acquaintance I ran into...I looked at it a moment...took it and took a small puff...didn't like it or want any more. It was strong and I knew I would get disoriented...a feel I do not like or crave. But I do support Medicinal Marijuana for those with conditions it will help alleviate, especially Terminal Cancer...5's...very nice job...

Often wanted to do this, but Kevin Bloody Wilson got there before me (Amazing grass, how sweet the smell/That made a wreck of me/I once was straight, but now shitfaced/Pass the joint round please) and I couldn't think of something different enough - seeing as you obviously don't know the KBW version, this has come up completely different. Nice one, AFW :-)

Somebody once asked me, back when I was a living, breathing baseball pitcher (and not better remembered as Tim's father and Faith Hill's father-in-law) what I thought of artificial grass. I had to be honest and say I didn't know, 'cause I've never smoked the stuff.

Thanks, never heard of the KBW version...Checked and found none similar.
