Written through Don Bowman, \"Wildwood Weed\" is based upon \"Wildwood Flower,\" a track performed by the Carter household in 1928. That dates ago to 1860.
Bowman\"s track by Stafford alludes to the weed\"s distinct powers:
Reached under for a weed to chew onThings gained fuzzy and also things gained blurryAnd then every little thing was goneDidn\"t recognize what happenedBut ns knew it beat the hell the end of sniffin\" burlap
The track continues:
The an extremely next day we picked a bunch of them weedsAnd placed \"em in the sun to dryThen us mashed \"em up and also chopped \"em upAnd put \"em in the corncob pipeSmokin\" that wildwood flower obtained to it is in a habitWe didn\"t check out no harmWe assumed it was type of handyTake a trip and never leaving the farm
And concludes on a comical note:
One work this feller indigenous Washington came byAnd that spied it and turned white as a sheetThen they dug and also they burnedAnd castle burned and also they dugAnd they eliminated all our cute little weeds.Then castle drove away,We just smiled and also wavedSittin\" over there on that sack the seeds!
