There is no shortage of pot smoking songs and since weed is the new whiskey in country music the following are The Travel Joint’s picks for the High Five country cannabis songs. New and old alike.
“Hush Hush” Pistol Annies
Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe’s lyrics are straightforward, shaking out the issues about dysfunctional families that are so often hidden under the rug. The pot-infused lyrics in this song are, “So I snuck out behind the red barn / And I took myself a toke / Since everybody here hates everybody here / Hell, I might as well be the joke.” The song’s music video takes place at a church potluck, which makes these lyrics even more funny.
“Weed Instead of Roses” Ashley Monroe
If a lover wants to woo Monroe, he doesn’t need to call up the florist — he needs to go find a stash. The pot-infused lyrics in this song are, “Give me weed instead of roses / Bring me whiskey instead of wine / Every puff, every shot / You’re looking better all the time” with a straight face.
Smoke a Little Smoke, Eric Church
Just go to a Eric Church concert and you will see all the pot references, and not just in this song. Eric’s gone pot crazy, throwing pot leaves around on all his merch, tweezing his thumb and first finger together on stage in the universal pot sign. It’s pot peetie pot pot–let’s all ride the purple Snuffleupagus to pot-ilicious pot-land! The pot-infused lyrics in this song are, “Kick back, gives the blues a spin / Break out the wine, forget again / Dig down deep, find my stash / Light it up, take me back.”Tour Tickets
Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson
With vocals by Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson and Jamey Johnson. The lyrics are exactly what you would imagine: The pot-infused lyrics in this song are, “Roll me up and smoke me when I die / And if anyone don’t like it, just look ’em in the eye / I didn’t come here, and I ain’t leavin’ / So don’t sit around and cry / Just roll me up and smoke me when I die.”Tour Tickets
“It’s All Goinng To Pot” Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard
No pot smoking list would be complete without a Willie Nelson song and we are happy to be able to include a newly released song that also includes legendary Mr. Haggard.
The pot-infused lyrics in this song are, “All the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tenn. / Just couldn’t hit the spot / I’ve got a hundred dollar bill / You can keep your pills / ‘Cause it’s all going to pot.”
