(Bill Anderson)

Ain't been in Little Rock
But two weeks and here I am now
Packing up and disappearing into thin air
Girls in Little Rock are cute
But I can't make my heart take roots
'Cause bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

I need a lots of sunshine
I need a lots of raindrops
I need to breath the open air
I hope to beg your pardon
Your town just ain't my garden
Bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

So honey kiss goodbye to your bad seed
my love is not the kind of love that you need
I could stay here with you but I wouldn't play fair
'Cause bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

And you're looking at the baddest of the bad seed.

--- Instrumental ---

Next stop Jacksonville now I don't know but I got the feeling
I might just kinda like it somewhere round there
Hear tell there's fertile land white pearly silver sand
And bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

I need a lots of sunshine
I need a lots of raindrops
I need to breath the open air
I hope to beg your pardon
Your town just ain't my garden
Bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

So honey kiss goodbye to your bad seed
my love is not the kind of love that you need
I could stay here with you but I wouldn't play fair
'Cause bad seed won't grow just anywhere.

And you're looking at the baddest of the bad seed...
This song is from the album "Get While the Gettin's Good [Decca]" and "The First 10 Years: 1956-1966".
