Burn One Down Lyrics

Artist: Ben Harper
Album: Fight For Your Mind

Let us burn one, from end to end.
And pass is over to me my friend.
Burn it long, but burn it slow,
to light me up before I go.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around.
Cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes I'm gonna burn one down

My choice is what i chose to do;
and if I'm causin no harm,
it shouldn't bother you.
Your choice is who you chose to be;
and if your causin to harm, then your alright with me.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around, cause I'm gona burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one, down.

Herb the gift, from the Earth,
and what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before u knock it, try it first.
and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse.
If you dont like my fire, then dont come around,
cause i'm gonna burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one.

oh yeah

"and if your causin to harm, then your alright with me."....that part of the lyric is wrong its' "and if your causin no harm, then your alright with me."...but this is a wicked song lol
by Watkins on 6/8/2008 4:21pm
this is the best song. i hate all those anti pot people. "its going to ruin ur life" bs its all bs. weed is a gift from the earth embrace it while we can so make ur own choices while u live and live how you want to, we only have so long before we all die so dont keep grudges. pass the peace :)
by Linus on 6/12/2008 6:50am
love this song ... pretty nice message in it , you can't just read the lyrics and think yeah it's about weed , there is a deeper sense of it "if you don't like my fire , then don't come around `think about it
by Andrew Q on 6/12/2008 1:32pm
This song is amazing
by trooz on 6/16/2008 9:06pm
i also think it is "burn the gift from the earth" not "herb the gift, from the earth"

my brother smokes, and i'd always nag him for it,

by katie on 6/25/2008 4:05pm
a word from eugene oregon. this is an anthem to all who live freely and love life. you must embrace the earth and us hippies know how too. =]. listen to the song and let your soul flow...
smoke. inhale. breathe.

thank you ben harper. your a true spirit.
by Bilbo Baggins on 7/14/2008 1:03pm
Great song, but the deal-breaker with these evil lyrics sites is that the transcriptions are SHIT. If I 'share a song' I have to edit the fucker monumentally. Hope I'm not "causin' to harm" here, but God are people STUPID. God Bless Ben all the same.
by Josh Korf on 7/18/2008 1:38pm
An amazing song, lyrically this song has so much meaning. specifically "Herb the gift, from the Earth, and what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before u knock it, try it first.
and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse" is by far one of the best written lyrics explaining exactly what marijuiana is and how it can help so many people throught out the entire world.

this song sounds like a great life style cause im gonna burn one down
by chelsea Keresz on 10/2/2008 11:36pm
if it's from the earth it most deff. is not a curse i just wish more people could understad that. in stead of judging people who smoke because weed has a waqy deeper meaning then something you smoke. it shoudl be legal. i think ciggarettes should be the thing that is illegal. and i strongly belive that. evan tho i also smoke ciggs.
by Tony on 10/18/2008 2:10am
You can talk about deeper meanings all you want, but "Herb the gift from the earth" is pretty damn specific. There's not a lot of wiggle room, there.
by Rowan on 10/18/2008 4:58pm
To me the song is more about finding friends and companions who you are comfortable with and comfortable with you and the choices you decide to make in life. not just about having a session. Great song ^_^

I don't smoke, but this song is beautiful. "If you don't like my fire, then don't come around". It has some really good meaning within the song.

by zenspeed on 1/15/2009 10:34pm
Note, my friend, that it's "if you're causin' NO harm, you're alright by me", not "if you're causin TO harm..."

i am burnin one down!!
one love!!
by Dead Head on 2/1/2009 8:56pm
i love this song so much! people shouldn't nag on you for what you choose to do it's your life! "i'm gonna choose what i choose to do, and if i'm causin no harm, it shouldn't bother you", weed is a gift from god. it's natural if he didn't want us to smoke it he wouldn't have put it on the earth!
by beubs22 on 2/3/2009 11:31am
hahaa.this just gives a bunch of potheads an exuse to defend smoking...yeah its alright if you do it, but when you let it take you over, which many people wind up behind the counter at Wendy's...don't act like all smoking pot is fine just because someone made a good song about it
by Scott on 2/4/2009 7:38am
I agree that this song is becoming something of an anthem for cannibis lovers, but just look at all these posts...if people were this motivated to actually go and do something about these ridiculous cannibis laws, then it would have been legal already. Let's get active people! NOW is the time!
by Scott...again on 2/4/2009 7:41am
Join and support NORML and perhaps one day we can all burn one down in public without shame or consequence. Beautiful song, deep message.
by TrueVermonter:) on 2/13/2009 4:23pm
70% of vermonter's smoke and interestingly enough, there aren't alot of wendy's around here OR people who work in them! I wonder why Vermont is such a happy peaceful place... hmm... could it be the weed?? ;p
by nunya on 2/20/2009 12:16am
wow ya'll are idiots. "its from the earth, it must be good" thats the dumbest thing i ever heard. go smoke some poison oak-its natural, its a gift from god, so take it and enjoy it. bunch of lazy do-nothing fags.
by Marcos on 2/22/2009 11:28pm
I Burn One XXL Down every morning, the best way to start my day.
by gotgrass? on 3/1/2009 5:26pm
FUCK all the ignorant fuckboys who keep nagging the herb. its the most beautiful thing in the world and fyi people who smoke aren't lazy do nothing fags, i do plenty in my day even when i'm not burning one. fuck you dude, go smoke a blunt. it'll make you not so uptight and a prude Dick.

>>hahaa.this just gives a bunch of potheads an exuse to defend smoking

We don't need an excuse to defend smoking. Personally, I don't care how another person feels about me smoking. It's my decision to do so and others should respect that. If my neighbor can kill brain cells with cheap light beer, allow me to smoke this delicious bud. A victimless crime is an oxymoron.

I don't smoke, but this song puts me in the most relaxing mood, it is so awesome. i'm a surfer so it is just awesome
by astrogirl on 5/17/2009 9:53am
that song really makes me burn one down!!!
by Allie on 5/21/2009 2:35pm
I'm going to have to agree with the 98% of people who actually do enjoy this song for what it is. This song is definitely about peace and acceptance. If the "ignorant fuckboy", as someone has brilliantly named him, can't realize that then fuck off. If you don't like it, then take your negative bull shit elsewhere. Actually, what you really need to do is open up you're mind a little and fully understand what Ben Harper is trying to say here... Anyways, AMAZING SONG. Absolutely genius. Something I can live my life by.

this song really makes me wanna smoke... and it definately is "no harm", but the "herb"-line is right.

nice song
by Lucy on 6/24/2009 4:46pm
To the people who are hating on marijuana.. If you don't like to smoke, what are you doing on this page?

Spend less time hating, more time on things ya like to do :)

This song is about acceptance. Religion, beliefs, different points of view.. they cause conflict in our nation, and world wide, because people cannot accept those who are different.

You don't have to smoke pot. You don't have to worship a certain religion or believe things you don't want to. You can stay true to you, without disrupting the peace.
by Josh on 7/17/2009 8:52pm
We all know this song isnt about weed :-p
by Aaron Petersen on 7/18/2009 3:19pm
Im a Christian. Jesus loves everyone. John 3:16. I love this song. If you are looking to become a part of Gods kingdom just simply pray 'dear Jesus i know i am a sinner and i reciece you as my savior right now, please come and live within me and make me a child of God
by Alien on 8/21/2009 1:05pm
What the fuck man ? This song makes you dance ? ... i think you didn't understood the message

This song makes me wanna SMOKE ... A LOT :X
by HEMP, my initials(: on 8/25/2009 7:25pm
the lyrics at the top are correct, and so what if there's some typos. it's still one of the greatest songs ever. ah, i love this song with a passion. it's beautiful. (:

love this song ... pretty nice message in it , you can't just read the lyrics and think yeah it's about weed , there is a deeper sense of it "if you don't like my fire , then don't come around `think about it
Ok, I thought about it, you are retarded.

Obviously it is about weed, I dont think he left it open to interpretation this time.

Get a clue.

@ Watkins: it seems to have ruined "you are" ability to learn grammar and spelling.

P.S. you're = you are
your = belonging to you
by E on 1/27/2010 3:23pm
very nice song, but i think there are as many said some mistakes in the words..i think it says also "pass it over" not "pass is over"..

Y do those of u who so vehemently bash weed come on this page simply to continue ur thotless tirade against a plant illegal because man decided so many years ago it was bad.. doesn't make sense to me. It seems lik u being such a diligent hardworking antistoner could find a better way to use your time id love to smoke you out one day and help you find some perspective my man
