One Toke Over The Line

     
 
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
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line


Who do you love?

I hope it's me
I've been a changin', as you can plainly see

The Rainmakers

I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
If I should choose to make a part of me would surely strike me dead
 

And now I'm 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
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line

 

I sailed away a country mile
And now I'm returning and showing off my smile
I met all the girls and I loved myself a few
And to my surprise
Like everything else that I've been through
It opened up my eyes
 

And now I'm one toke over the line, sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line

 

Don't you know I'm just waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line

 

extra verse with Michael Brewer & Tom Shipley

I was born to give and take
And as I keep growin' I'm gonna make some mistakes

The sun's gonna set and the bird is gonna wing they do not lie
My last wish will be just one thing
Be smilin' when I die

 

I wanna be one toke over the line, sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station, Iím one toke over the line
Don't you know I'm just waitin' for the train that goes home sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station one toke over the line
One toke
One toke over the line
