  • Song Lyrics:
    Oh yes, boys, play it sweet for me
    I was sittin' in my basement; I'd just rolled myself a taste of
    Somethin' green and gold and glorious to get me through the day
    When my friend yells through my transom, grab your coat an' get your hat, son
    There's a nut down on the corner a givin' dollar bills away
    But I sat around a bit and then I had another hit
    And then I rolled myself a bomber, thought about my momma
    Looked around, fooled around, played around while and then
    I got stoned and I missed it. I got stoned and I missed it
    I got stoned and it rolled right by
    I got stoned and I missed it. I got stoned and I missed it. I got stoned oh me, oh my
    It took seven months of urgin' just to get that local virgin
    With the sweet face up to my place to fool around a bit
    And next day she woke up rosy and she snuggled up so cozy
    But when she asked me how I liked it, Lord it hurt me to admit
    I got stoned and I missed it...
    [ fiddle ]
    I ain't makin' no excuses for so many things I uses
    Just to brighten my relationships and sweeten up my day
    But when my earthly race is over and I'm ready for the clover
    And they ask me how my life has been, I guess I have to say
    I was stoned and I missed it...
