Blow Up Your TV

This song is by John Denver and appears on the album Aerie (1972) and on the live album The Harbor Lights Concert (2002).

She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
Well, she pressed her chest against me about the time the jukebox broke
She give me a peck on the back of the neck and these are the words she spoke

Blow up your TV, throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try and find Jesus on your own

I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
'Cause I knew that topless lady, she had something up her sleeve
She danced around the room awhile and she did the Hoochie Koo
Yeah sing a song all night long tellin' me what to do

Blow up your TV, throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try and find Jesus on your own

But I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
Just as I was going she looked me in the face
I said "You must know the answer", she said "No, but I'll give it a try"
And to this day we've been livin' our way, here is the reason why

We blew up the TV, threw away the paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lotta children, fed 'em on peaches
They all found Jesus on their own
