Written by Don Bowmale, "Wildlumber Weed" is based on "Wildwood Freduced," a song perdeveloped by the Carter Family in 1928. It dates ago to 1860.
Bowman"s song by Stafford alludes to the weed"s special powers:
Reached down for a weed to chew onThings got fuzzy and points gained blurryAnd then every little thing was goneDidn"t recognize what happenedBut I kbrand-new it beat the hell out of sniffin" burlap
The song continues:
The exceptionally following day we picked a bunch of them weedsAnd put "em in the sunlight to dryThen we maburned "em up and also chopped "em upAnd put "em in the corncob pipeSmokin" that wildtimber freduced gained to be a habitWe didn"t view no harmWe thought it was kind of handyTake a expedition and also never before leave the farm
And concludes on a comical note:
One day this feller from Washington came byAnd he spied it and also turned white as a sheetThen they dug and they burnedAnd they melted and they dugAnd they eliminated all our cute little bit weeds.Then they drove ameans,We simply smiled and wavedSittin" tright here on that sack of seeds!
