It Ain't Easy Being Green


It Ain't Easy Being Green.

Through the hottest part of Summer,

tryng to keep my horse pasture green.

Caught between a rock and a hard place,

The price of copper and gasoline.

My little gas powered pasture pump,

just cost too much to run,

So when it broke down, I made the switch,

and bought an electric one.

Now electric pumps are cheap to buy,

and the price of power is stable,

But I had to take a second mortgage,

to buy a hundred yards of electric cable.
