Homegrown Tomatoes
By Guy Clark
Written by Guy Clark
Album: Better Days (1983)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 5 

Ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes
Up in the mornin' out in the garden
G                   D                      G
Get you a ripe one, don't get a hard one

Plant 'em in the spring eat, 'em in the summer
All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin' & diggin'
Everytime I go out & pick me a big one

Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes
What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can't buy
G                  D                    G 
That's true love & homegrown tomatoes

You can go out to eat & that's for sure
But it's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
Put 'em in a salad, put 'em in a stew
You can make your very own tomato juice

You can eat 'em with egss, eat 'em with gravy
Eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy
Put 'em on the side, put 'em in the middle
Put a homegrown tomato on a hotcake griddle


Now if I's to change this life I lead
I'd be Johnny Tomato Seed
'Cause I know what this country needs
It's homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see

When I die don't bury me
In a box in a cemetary
Out in the garden would be much better
And I could be pushin' up homegrown tomatoes
