(Mel McDaniel)
If you don't like the way they make 'em in the city
Cause they taste too strong the dang paper ain't pretty
Roll your own roll your own
You'll leave the ready rolls behind when you finally find a roll your own.
There's the raspberry strawberry pretty red wine
Besides tasting good you're gonna have a nice time
Roll your own roll your own
You're gonna have a nice time I ain't lyin' roll your own.
Well, the first time you try it you're gonna cuss and shout
'Cause the paper keeps tearin' and the stuffin' falls out
But don't give up 'cause after a while
You'll be smokin' right on with a big ole smile
Roll your own, roll your own.
--- Instrumental ---
When you finally get the hang of rolling your own
You'll want to share it with a friend let 'em pass it along
Roll your own roll your own
You won't smoke so dang much when you finally get the touch
So roll your own.
You'll leave the ready rolls behind when you finally find
A roll your own...
