They were farm kids way down in Dixie
Met in high school in the sixties
Everyone knew it was love from the start
One July in the midnight hour
He climbed upon the water tower
Stood on the rail and painted a 10ft heart
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3ft high
And the whole town said that he should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

They settled down on 80 acres
Raising sweet corn, kids, and tomatos
They went together like a hand and a glove
On a clear day from their front yard
If you look and know what to look for
Off to the east you can still read his words of love
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 ft high
And the whole town said the boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

Now more than once
The town has discovered
Painting over it ain't no use
There ain't no paint in the world
That'll cover it, the heart keeps showing through
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3ft high
And the whole town said the fool should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

Ahh paint it green boy
In John Deere Green

On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3ft high
And the whole town said the boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green

John Deere Green
