The Lyrics

I once had a burl; it came from my favorite tree.
I carried it West, isn't it good, Northeastern wood?

In California I found an inspection station there.
I told the inspector I'd use my burl to make a chair.

He searched me for drugs--patting my spine, sniffing for wine.
He checked me for fruit, and then he said, "Your plan is dead."

He told me exotic plant types must be stopped in their tracks.
He confiscated my burl and said, "I cannot be lax."

I saw plumes of smoke as I drove off, on the bad road.
He had lit a fire--it turned to soot, Northeastern wood.
