Subject: Used to Sit around and sing about booze
From: GUEST,CBJames
Date: 05 Jun 02 - 11:18 PM

"Now I sing about what ever I use"

I think John Hartford wrote this ?

Is there more? Like: "Used to get high and listen to the Beatles Ain't as much fun now, that it's legal" or: "You get the milk and I'll get the cookies we'll get high and have a little nookie"

In the great irony of parenting teenagers to whom I will never admit my wanton past, I find myself desperate to confirm my roots with songs I can only sing to myself until they are grown up, gone away to school and all that.

Any body know the full lyrics to this one?

Hartford also sang a lovely song which started out very low and finished several squeaky octaves higher. Any Lyrics out there for that one?

Thanks

James

This (CLICK) is all I found and it's a bit complicated..........first, go to the site I linked to. Then, right click the mouse anywhere on the screen. Choose "Properties", maximize the Properties window and just keep scrolling down. I think eventually you will get to the lyrics of this song.........they are embedded and hidden behind all the mess on the site. Sorry, that is the best I could do. Maybe harpgirl will have more.

No idea what you mean about the other song.

Subject: Lyr Add: GRANNY WONTCHA SMOKE SOME MARIJUANA
From: GUEST,Anahootz

CB- The tune whose lines you quote is GRANNY WONTCHA SMOKE SOME MARIJUANA

When it gets dry and you wanna get high
I gotta clean them seeds just one more time

(chorus) Granny woncha smoke some, granny woncha smoke some, granny wontcha smoke some mari ju ana (x2)

Now I used to sit around and sing about booze
Now I sing about whatever I use

Chorus

Now you get the milk and I'll get the cookies
we'll get high and do the boogie

Chorus

Hey moe, light that bowl
Smoke it down short and eat the roach

Chorus

Gramps sittin in the den smokin a havana
Grannys out lookin for some marijuana

Chorus

Crying, down on my knees
Get away granny get away please

Chorus

Well we used to get high and listen to the beatles
it aint much fun now that it's legal

Chorus

While probably not spot-on, this is the version that goes around at least once a year at the local jam

The text hidden in the linked site above goes:

Now I sit around and sing about whatever I choose

Granny wontcha smoke some
Granny wontcha smoke some
Granny wontcha smoke some
Marijuana

Granny wontcha smoke some
Granny wontcha smoke some
Granny wontcha smoke some
Marijuana

Now you get the milk and I'll get the cookies
We'll get high and do the boogie

Granny wontcha smoke some
Granny wontcha smoke some
etc

So, is there a connection with John Hartford, or not?

Yeah, of course there is. It's a hartford tune...just like "don't leave your records in the sun" and "steam powered aeroplane" and his ode to bob marley, "two hits and the joint turned brown"

"granny woncha" is on his "nobody knows what I do" album, if memory serves me correctly

I think the 3rd verse on the album version is

"Well the kids are a prayin' and looking for Nirvana
Granny's out looking for some marijuana"
