They were farm kids way down in Dixie,
They met in high school in the sixties.
Everyone knew it was love from the start.
One July in the midnight hour,
He climbed up on 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 eighty acres,
raising sweet corn, kids, and tomatoes,
They went together like a hand and a glove

On a clear day, from there 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 3ft high.
And the whole town said the boy should have used red,
But it looked good to Charlene,
In John Deere Green.

-music break-

Now more than once the town has discovered,
paintin' over it aint no use.
There aint no paint in the world
that will cover it, the heart keeps showin 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.

-music break-

ahh paint it green boys!

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-DEER-GREEN!
