******** HOMEGROWN TOMATOES ********

Homegrown Tomatoes

There's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Bacon, lettuce and home grown tomatoes
Up in the morning and out in the garden
Pick you a ripe one, don't get a hard 'un
Plant 'em in the springtime eat 'em in the summer
All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin' and the diggin'
Every time I go out and pick me a big'un

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What'd life be without home grown tomatoes
There's only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

You can go out and eat 'em, that's for sure
But there's nothin' a home grown tomato won't cure
You can put 'em in a salad, put 'em in a stew
You can make your own, very own tomato juice
You can eat 'em with eggs, you can eat 'em with gravy
You can eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy
Put em on the side, put em on the middle
Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle

If I could change this life I lead
You could call me Johnny Tomato Seed
I know what this country needs
It's home grown tomatoes in 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
Where I could be pushin' up home grown tomatoes

I totally agree! My dad's homegrown tomatoes are AWESOME! I love this time of year, until the tomatoes are gone. BLT's, Salads, or just eat them like an apple....YUM!

Peace,
Pickles

Wasn't there a John Denver song about home grown tomatoes?

From the album "Country Roads-Very Best Of John (199"

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground album, and has also been released on The Gift You Are and The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home, Country Roads albums.

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 pick a hard 'un
Plant 'em in the spring, eat ¡®em in the summer
All winter without ¡®em is a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin¡¯ and the diggin¡¯
Every time I go out and pick me a big ¡®un

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can¡¯t buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

You can go out to eat an that¡¯s for sure
But there¡¯s nothin¡¯ a homegrown tomatoe won¡¯t cure
Put ¡®em in a salad, put ¡®em in a stew
You can make your own tomatoe juice
You can eat ¡®em with eggs, eat ¡®em with gravy
You can eat ¡®em with beans, pinto or navy
Put 'em on the side, put ¡®em in the middle
Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can¡¯t buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

If I¡¯s to change this life I lead
You could call me Johnny Tomatoe Seed
¡®Cause I know what this country needs
Home grown tomatoes in every yard you see
When I die don¡¯t bury me
In a box in a cold dark cemetary
Out in the garden would be much better
¡®Cause I could be pushin ¡®up a home grown tomatoe

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can¡¯t buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes
