And if one song about homegrown tomatoes tain't nearly enuff...

let's all open our hymnbooks to "Jesus and Tomatoes":

I bought a pack of seeds
Tennessee Bradleys
The best homegrown you'll ever find
How it happened I don't know
Must've been the Miracle-Gro
Oh I could not believe my eyes
In my tomato bed
A holy image blood red

Smile God loves you
I see him on the vine
This just might be a sign
Help me I'm confused
So many brands to choose
Jesus and tomatoes coming soon

Folks came from miles around
They laid their money down
To see that ripe phenomenon
It even made the evening news
And had a website too
This vegetable from heaven (Or is it a fruit?)
What rose up from the dirt
Now sells on t-shirts

The profits kept rolling in
I prayed they'd never end
And filed for tax exemption
I heard a knocking at my door
It was a lawyer for the Lord
Saying don't do this no more
I said come and dine with me
We'll have a BLT

(Words and music by Kate Campbell, Ira Campbell and Johnny Pierce)
