    .... and the All Night Newsboys. This band from the late 1960s ~ early 1970s had a laid back country rock sound, unusual for an urban group. They wrote and recorded a song called "Strike a Match" that uses a very common chord progression that I can't quite put my finger on (I'm not much of a musician) but it serves as the backbone of MANY country rock songs. In any event, the first two verses go like this:

    In the first days of this country when the buffalo roamed the land,
    All the saddle tramps and cowboys used to roll their joints by hand;
    They’d sit up on their saddle on their *** or on their horse and
    Recite a little ditty that goes like this, of course:

    Refrain:
    “When your feet are in the stirrups, and your *** is on the ground
    ‘Cuz the grass that he’s been eatin’ is the finest stuff around;
    Well, let us all remember boys, and let us not fergit,
    Strike a match and light another marijuana cigarette.

    Well, you can smoke it, you can eat it, you can mix it with yer beer,
    You can snort it through your nose, and you can hang it in yer ear.
    And if you’ve got the notion boys, and if he’s got the class,
    You can chuck it in his feedbag and feed it to your ***.

    Refrain:
    “When your feet are in the stirrups, and your *** is on the ground
    ‘Cuz the grass that he’s been eatin’ is the finest stuff around;
    Well, let us all remember boys, and let us not fergit,
    Strike a match and light another marijuana cigarette.

    What comes next is a mystery to me. Can anyone help me find the third verse ~ if one exists? I'd like to nail down the chord changes, too.

    There was a line that went something like:
    "Now you have heard of pain, and you've heard of misery, and you've heard of Richard Nixon but you sure ain't heard of me. Some people smoke a little and some people smoke alot but ain't much gonna touch your thinkin' once you're started smokin' pot?
