Somebody took that Humboldt classic, Family Felony, by the Camo Cowboys and did some cutting and pasting.  I kind of like it.  I still prefer the original but it was fun to see images along with the music variations.

 

Many years ago, they made a move back to the land.

Lots of hippie folks— you know they didn’t have much cash in hand.

But they all found a way to pay the bills and make ends meet.

Now they spend their days farming weeds and trying to beat the heat.

It’s just a family felony.

I think the neighbors would all have to agree

Just a little family felony

I won’t tell on you

Don’t you tell on me

 

Junior’s helping Dad hiding waterline up a ravine

well life ain’t too bad on 40 acres with an outside scene

A garden here and there with water dripping from a local stream.

tender loving care is all it takes to keep the ladies green

It’s just a family felony.

I think the neighbors would all have to agree

Just a little family felony

I won’t tell on you

Don’t you tell on me

 

Sis is helping ma clipping flowers with the local gals

Well it may be against the law but hey at least they are working with their pals.

Grandma is helping too

You know her dear old dad used to bootleg booz

And just between me and you they’re all happy with the life they choose.

It’s just a family felony.

I think the neighbors would all have to agree

Just a little family felony

I won’t tell on you

Don’t you tell on me

 

Its just a family felony

A little family felony.
