The only joint my mother burned was on the rural route
She parked in old man Taylor's woods so she wouldn't be found out
Turned off her dome light and snuck off by herself
Crouched down beneath that window, fired it up, and gave it hell

That hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that the tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned

Just like someone flipped a switch, dad started coming home
No more eating late cause supper's with that tavern gone
I had my suspicions, til the night when we said grace
Dad said, "Forgive us, our transgressions as I lit up momma's face."

Like that hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that the tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned

Of all the small town bonfires and bloodhounds in this town
I'm the only one who ever found out about

That hangout my daddy used to hang around
We watched it all go up in smoke until it all came down
Just like that the tabs and stools and tables got turned
To the only joint my momma ever burned
