Look out
People used to call me backwards
Livin' out here with the tractors,
Lettin' this world leave me behind
Now-a-days I'm an innovator
I'm a country boy prognosticator
I'm a man ahead of my times

I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a John Deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard full of corn, peas and beans
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing

Sheets on the clothes line dryin'
Red Tail hawks a flyin'
A couple of deer on the timber line
Yeah, and I know a lot more about cane pole fishin'
Then I ever will know about carbon emission
And my little corner of the world is doing just fine

I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a John Deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard full of corn, peas and beans
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing

Yeah, I've got a hundred acre farm
I've got a John Deere in my barn
I've got a garden in my yard full of root baked potatos and greens
I've got a guitar I play unplugged
I've got a home-grown girl I love
And when the summer time hits, we skinny dip in the stream
I was green before green was a thing
I was green before green was a thing
Oh, yeah
