Eric Church The Joint Lyrics

Last updated: 08/19/2014 12:57:45 PM

The only joint my mother burned was on the rural route
She parked in old man Taylor's woods so she wouldn't be found out
Turned off her dome light and snuck off by herself
Crouched down beneath that window, fired it up, and gave it hell

Like That hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like after tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned

Just like someone flipped a switch, dad started coming home
No more eating late cold supper's with that tavern gone
I had my suspicions, til the night when we said grace
Dad said, "Forgive us, our transgressions" a smile lit up momma's face.

Like that hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like after tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned

All the small town Barney Fifes and bloodhounds in this town
But the only one who ever found out was dad

Like that hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like after tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned, burned, burned, burned
