Edna Scott been growin beans
Since her husband left her in between
a rock and a hard place back in 88

Pretty soon she came to know
You can't survive on beans alone
Supply, demand required a different business plan

So she planted some 'maters, planted some peas
She's got sweet corn too, best you'll ever eat...but

That ain't her cash crop
That ain't what makes 'em drop
20 in the bucket no siree
Every single Saturday
It's that something extra she slips in their sack
Got 'em standing in line, keeps 'em coming back
For her cash crop, they love her cash crop

Miss Edna lives in a simple house
On a rural road just out of town
Nice and private, just like she likes it

Every day she tends her garden plot
Even so it's gone to pot
Lord She's a sight to see, up to her ears in weed...

Yeah, she got okra she got collard greens
And her canteloupes are mighty sweet...but


Sheriff Ramsey knows what's going on but he just looks the other way
Even if the broccoli's full of worms you won't hear him complain, 'cause


(no personal checks please)
