Facts:
  • Some radio stations refused to play this song because of the drug references, but not everyone got this meaning. In 1971 the song was performed on the Lawrence Welk Show by a wholesome looking couple Gail Farrell and Dick Dale, who clearly had NO clue what a toke was. Welk, at the conclusion of the performance of the song, remarked, without any hint of humor, "there you've heard a modern spiritual by Gail and Dale." Brewer & Shipley heard about the performance and searched for the footage, but didn't see it until the clip showed up on YouTube in 2007. (Hatman)
  • Song Lyrics:
    One toke over the line sweet Jesus
    One toke over the line
    Sittin' downtown in a railway station
    One toke over the line

    Awaitin' 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

    Whoooo do you love, I hope it's me
    I've been a changin', as you can plainly see
    I felt the joy and I learned about the pain that my momma said
    If I should choose to make a part of me, surely strike me dead
    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
    I'm 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 sail away a country mile,
    Now I'm returnin' showin' off a smile
    I met all the girls and loved myself a few
    And to my surprise like everything else 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
    Don't you just know I 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 just know I 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 want to be
    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 just know I 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 line
    One toke, one toke over the line
