Home Grown Tomatoes Submit Correct Lyrics

There ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
Than bacon 'n lettuce 'n home grown tomatoes
Up in the mornin', and out in the garden
Get you a ripe one, don't pick a hard 'un

Plant 'em in the spring, eat 'em in the summer
All winter without 'em is a culinary bummer
I forgot all about the sweatin' and the diggin'
Every time I go out and pick me a big 'un

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be without home grown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

You can go out to eat and that's for sure
But there's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
Put 'em in a salad, put 'em in a stew
You can make your very own tomato juice

You can eat 'em with eggs, eat 'em with gravy
You can eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy
Put 'em on the side, put 'em in the middle
Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would like be without home grown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

If I've to change this life I lead
You could call me Johnny Tomatoseed
'Cause I know what this country needs
Home grown tomatoes in every yard you see

When I die don't bury me
In a box, in a cold dark cemetery
Out in the garden would be much better
'Cause I could be pushin' up a home grown tomato

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would like be without home grown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes

Home grown tomatoes
What would like be without home grown tomatoes?
Only two things that money can't buy
That's true love and home grown tomatoes
