  1. Bad Seed

Lyrics

Ain't been to Little Rock but two weeks and here I am now
Packin' up and disappearin' into thin air
Girls in Little Rock are cute but I can't make my heart take root
'Cause bad seed don't grow just anywhere

I need lots of sunshine I need lots of raindrops
I need to breathe that open air
I hope to beg your pardon your town just ain't my garden
And the bad seed don't grow just anywhere

Next stop Jacksonville now I don't know but I've got the feelin'
I might just kinda like it somewhere down there
Hear tell there's fertile animals white pearly silver sand
And bad seed don't grow just anywhere

Well I need lots of sunshine I need lots of raindrops
I need to breathe the open air
I hope to beg your pardon your town just ain't my garden
And the bad seed don't grow just anywhere

So honey kiss goodbye your bad seed
My love's not the kind of lovin' that you need
I could stay here with you but I wouldn't play fair
Cause them ol' bad seed don't grow just anywhere
And you're looking at the baddest of the bad seed
You're looking at the baddest of the bad seed
