39. "One Toke Over The Line" by Brewer & Shipley
Edited on Thu Mar-24-05 05:45 PM by mcscajun
:smoke: :evilgrin: :smoke:

From the Brewer & Shipley website:
It was a banned record in 1971, but the listening audience of the time chose to make it a hit anyway. Spiro T. Agnew, the vice-president of the United States, named Brewer & Shipley personally as subversives to American youth, and they wore making President Richard Nixon's hate list as a badge of honor. Ironically, at the same time, Lawrence Welk performed the song on his T.V. show, and introduced it as a gospel song.
Hunter S. Thompson mentioned the song several times in his 1971 novel, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and it is now part of the soundtrack of the 1998 movie starring Johnny Depp.


One toke over the line, sweet Jesus, one toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line
Waitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hoping that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station, one toke over the line
