Devil Weed
by Donovan
The buds they bloom with a pungent scent
They often cause much merrimet
You can't get sick or addicted at all
Like you can with tobacco and alcohol
The history books they tell it plain
Queen Victoria took it for her period pain
Oh Lord! Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed

When you compare growing it with cotton
You don't have to put any chemicals on
It holds the soil together a lot
And some of us like to call it pot
I got jeans and a jacket and even hemp shoes
But you won't see me smoking them on the news
Lord! Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed

Yeah...

It grows long and tough, a little water is enough
It takes anywhere and it cleans the air
It makes fine rope, cloth and paper too
It saves the trees for me and you
A law was passed making everyone to sow it
Even Jefferson and Washington grew it
Oh Lord! Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed

The buds they bloom with a pungent scent
They often cause much merrimet
You can't get sick or addicted at all
Like you can with tobacco and alcohol
The history books they tell it plain
Queen Victoria took it for her period pain
Oh Lord! Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Such a lot from one little seed
And they outlaw it and call it devil weed
Devil weed
Devil weed
