Gone Green - Brad Paisley feat Emmylou Harris

Well he traded in his dumb old Ford
For a new smart car with an extension cord
Now he's saving gas and got a cheaper note
But he's got no way to haul his boat

It's the little things we take for granted
When we sacrifice to save the planet
The darndest thing I've ever seen
That old redneck has done gone green

Down the road, old man McGower
You know he runs his house on the solar power
Now his lights are bright and the music plays
Sort of dark and quiet on the cloudy days

It's the little things we take for granted
When we sacrifice to save the planet
The darndest thing you've ever seen
This old redneck has done gone green

The life we knew is coming to a halt
Sad but true, and it's our own fault
We put our own crimson necks right in the noose
We got strung out on that black dinosaur juice

Not long ago someone told me
To quit using paper, stop killing trees
She said soon there won't be no more books
I swear to God on a stack of nooks

It's the little things we take for granted
When we sacrifice to save the planet
The darndest thing I've ever seen
My redneck world has done gone green
The whole dang place has done gone green
