John Deere Green

In the style of

Joe Diffie

Lyrics

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 ten foot heart

in john deere green
on a hot summer night
he wrote
billy bob loves
charlene
in letters
three foot high

and the
whole town said
that he
shoulda used red
but it looked good
to charlene
in john deere green

they settled down
on eighty acres
raisin' sweet corn
kids and tomatos
they went together
like a hand
in 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
three foot high

and the
whole town said
that he
shoulda used red
but it looked good
to charlene
in john deere green

now more than once
the town has
discovered
paintin' over it
ain't no use

there ain't
no paint in the world
that'll cover it
the heart keeps
showin' through

in john deere green
on a hot summer night
he wrote
billy bob loves
charlene
in letters
three foot high

and the
whole town said
the fool
should've used red
but it looked good
to charlene
in john deere green

john deere green
