The Lyrics

Yes Michael, I know the original was from the 50s, but the other parodies of this song are all listed in the 60s and I wanted to keep them together.
I keep a close watch on that farm of mine
Because it's crept wide over Caroline
It ate my fence and half of my combine
It's here to dine, that kudzu vine

I find that early Sunday morning my poor cow
It fell asleep alone next to my ol' plow
Yes it's sad it's all green and shaggy now
It's here to dine, that kudzu vine

To keep me quite from harm of stray vine blight
I close my windows tight both day and night
Plant voracious has shown its appetite
It's here to dine, that kudzu vine

I've spent a way too much on herbicide
'Cus it will be alive past when I've died
Boo hoo, I know my garden fell to kudzucide
It's here to dine, that kudzu vine

I keep a close watch on that farm of mine
I watch my rice, rye, oats, corn in decline
And now it's entwined a full sty of swine
It came to dine, that kudzu vine

You know kudzu?? Around here, it covers whole trees and houses...anything it can get it's leaf on. Really good parody.

'Round my door, the leaves are crawlin'... anybody who does a J.R. song doesn't have to worry too much about me getting snippy about it.

ROBERT, Kudzu-Puraria lobata- A wild vine that can be likened to the Blob (of B Movie fame) Once it hits, it keeps growing, and growing into perpitutiy , it's virtualy unstoppable. Much like the success of Merry & Pippin Themselves. Kudzu and kudo's for a very creative & successful parody.

Entwined swine, indeed. Excellent parody. Congrats for getting published!!! I think you should get royalties from the book sales; but, if not, maybe the recognition will lead to other members of the literati discovering and exploiting you.

Replacing vote.

Ha! Lovely rhymes and an original concept. Indeed, hopefully you will have set a precedence of books using song parodies as a standard form of introduction! 555

I'm happy you got this published--just goes to show, if you wanna write, and it makes you happy, then do it.

When I was little riding with my grandparents trhough southern Alabama part of journey was looking at the kudzu and being amazed at how beautiful I thought they were, and how interesting. Sometimes I imagained they were giant green dinasors( sp) and then other times they took on shapes of other living c reatures. I think they are fascinating. And its weird. In the winter here in Georgia where I live now, they disappear sorta. Their vines look dead and grey and they are non existent because the eye is not attracted to it. When warm weather comes and the leaves of the kudzu come back it is just another indication that summer is on its way. It's a sorry s.o.b. but its here for the ride, it's all over the countryside. Also, Johnny Cash was one helluva guy. He made, played and sang some of the best music in the world. Voices don't get any deeper than Cash's.
