Skördetid; Homegrown Tomatoes

Homegrown Tomatoes, Guy Clark (from Better Days 1983)


Ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better

Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes

Up in the mornin’ out in the garden

Get you a ripe one don’t get a hard one


Plant `em in the spring eat `em in the summer

All winter with out `em’s a culinary bummer

I forget all about the sweatin’ & diggin’

Everytime I go out & pick me a big one


Homegrown tomatoes homegrown tomatoes

What’d life be without homegrown tomatoes

Only two things that money can’t buy

That’s true love & homegrown tomatoes


You can go out to eat & that’s for sure

But it’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


Eat `em with eggs, eat `em with gravy

Eat `em with beans, pinto or navy

Put `em on the site put `em in the middle

Put a homegrown tomato on a hotcake griddle


If I’s to change this life I lead

I’d be Johnny Tomato Seed

`Cause I know what this country needs

Homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see

When I die don’t bury me

In a box in a cemetary

Out in the garden would be much better

I could be pushin’ up homegrown tomatoes
