Lyrics

… I always heard that his herb was top shelf
And Lord, I just could not wait to find out for myself
Well, don’t knock it ’til you tried it
And I’ve tried it, my friend
I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
… Now we learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town
He fired up a fat boy and he passed it around
And the last words I spoke before they tucked me in
I may discount bungee jump
But I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
… I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party’s all over before it begins
Now you can pour me some ol’ Whiskey River, my friend
But I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
… We hopped on his old bus, the Honeysuckle Rose
The party was Huntsville, it was after the show
Alone in the front lounge, just me and him
I took one friendly puff and the Grim Creeper set in
… I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party’s all over before it begins
Now you can pour me some ol’ Whiskey River, my friend
But I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again (let’s go down to Texas, guy)
… And now we’re passin’ the guitar, we’re tellin’ good jokes
I can tell one’s a-comin’ ’cause I’m smellin’ the smoke
No, I do not partake, I just let it pass by
With a grin on my face and a great contact high
… I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party’s all over before it begins
Now you can pour me some ol’ Whiskey River, my friend
But I’ll never smoke weed with Willie again
… In the fetal position, with drool on our chin
We broke down and smoked weed with Willie again
