John Deere Green Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They were farm kids way down in Dixie
Met in high school in the sixties
Everyone knew it was love from the start
Verse 2
One July in the midnight hour
He climbed upon the water tower
Stood on the rail and painted a 10 foot heart
Verse 3
In John Deere Green
On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 foot high
Verse 4
And the whole town said
That he should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green
Verse 5
They settled down on 80 acres
Raising sweet corn, kids, and tomatoes
They went together like a hand and a glove
Verse 6
On a clear day from their front yard
If you look and know what to look for
Off to the east you can still read his words of love
Verse 7
In John Deere Green
On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 foot high
Verse 8
And the whole town said
The boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green
Verse 9
Now more than once the town has discovered
Painting over, it ain't no use
There ain't no paint in the world that'll cover it
The heart keeps showing through
Verse 10
In John Deere Green
On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 foot high
Verse 11
And the whole town said
The fool should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green
Verse 12
Ahh, paint it green, boy
Verse 13
In John Deere Green
On a hot summer night
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene
In letters 3 foot high
Verse 14
And the whole town said
The boy should have used red
But it looked good to Charlene
In John Deere Green
Verse 15
John Deere Green
