Music Monday: Jason Aldean – 1994 + Joe Diffie – John Deere Green

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Jason Aldean – 1994 + Joe Diffie – John Deere Green

Today I thought I’d do another of my now and then posts that I’ve done a few times. The newer song is Jason Aldean’s 1994 which the lyrics mention Joe Diffie quite a bit so I thought I’d also share one of his tunes as he obviously inspired  the songwriters for 1994 that Aldean released.

Lyrics: 

 

Now girl I know you used to the same old same
But we ain’t floatin’ that boat, no we ain’t ridin’ that train
Hop on my rocket ship and let’s get outta here
Let me put a little shimmer in your atmosphere

 

Now let’s get outta this town, outta this club
Girl whatever you’re sippin’ I’ma mix it up
Take a few tick-tocks off of your clock
Put a little Third Rock in your hip-hop
I got that

 

1994, Joe Diffie comin’ out my radio
I’m just a country boy with a farmer’s tan
So help me girl I’ll be your Pick-Up Man
How ’bout a night to remember and a fifth of Goose
‘Bout to bust out my honky-tonk attitude
A little feel good you ain’t never felt before
I’m talkin’ 1994

 

Hey Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie

 

Girl don’t you worry, now your ship just came in
So go on tell your mama, tell all your friends
That your new favorite color is John Deere green
Hop in this truck aka Time Machine

 

1994, Joe Diffie comin’ out my radio
I’m just a country boy with a farmer’s tan
So help me girl I’ll be your Pick-Up Man
How ’bout a night to remember and a fifth of Goose
‘Bout to bust out my honky-tonk attitude
A little feel good you ain’t never felt before
I’m talkin’ 1994

 

Hey Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie

 

Baby if you’re lookin’ for a good time
Let me take you to the C-O-U-N-T-R-Y
Now baby let’s go, holler if you’re with me
Hey Joe, come on and teach us how to Diffie

 

1994, Joe Diffie comin’ out my radio
I’m just a country boy with a farmer’s tan
So help me girl I’ll be your Pick-Up Man
How ’bout a night to remember and a fifth of Goose
‘Bout to bust out my honky-tonk attitude
A little feel good you ain’t never felt before
I’m talkin’ 1994

 

Hey Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Joe, Joe, Joe Diffie
Will the real Joe Diffie please stand up

Lyrics: 

They were farm kids way down in Dixie
They met in high school in the ‘sixties.
Everyone knew it was love from the start.
One July in the midnight hour,
They climbed upon the water tower,
Stood on the rail and painted a ten foot heart

In John Deere green, on a hot summer night.
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene in letters three foot high,
And the whole town said that he should’ve use red
But it looked good to Charlene in John Deere Green.

They settled down on eighty acres,
Raising sweet corn, kids and tomatoes,
They went together like a hand and a glove.
On a clear day, from their front yard,
If you look and know what to look for,
Off to the east you can still read his words of love

In John Deere green, on a hot summer night.
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene in letters three foot high,
And the whole town said that he should’ve use red
But it looked good to Charlene in John Deere Green.

Now more than once the town has discovered
Painting over it ain’t no use.
There ain’t no paint in the world that’ll cover it,
The heart keeps showing through.

In John Deere green, on a hot summer night,
He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene in letters three foot high.
And the whole town said that he should’ve used red
But it looked good to Charlene in John Deere green.
