Lyrics and Chords to “It’s 4:20 Somewhere”

It’s 4:20 Somewhere
Parody Written By: Chief Greenbud\
I capo this up 2

D A Bm
If you watch the clock to smoke your pot then you should know
You’re not alone
D A Bm
If your grass is like molasses Hydro grown
That gets you stoned
If you’re counting the hours and watching the minutes
For that special time when everyone hits it
Take it from me you’re really not that far away

Roll me something fat and long
Or pack me a bowl or fill me a bong
It only comes twice a day but I don’t care
It’s 420 somewhere

This smoke break is going to make my afternoon
When I get high
Even if it’s my last bud I’ll smoke it up
And it’ll be alright
I’ve been sittin here waitin for what seems like a year
my Jamaican connections said he’d meet me here
If the phones for me tell him he better be on his way


Bm G A D
I spent all my cash replenished my stash but it’s only a quarter of two
Bm G Em A
At a moment like this I can’t help but wonder what would Willie do?
no chord
He’d say to fire that thing UP !!!

CD Review – CGB Vol 3

Chief Greenbud – CGB 3
August 13, 2012
Nashville, TN
by Dan Harr

Marijuana should be legal! For the first time since polls were taken by Gallup starting in the 1960′s, more Americans than not think the drug should be legalized for medical and recreational use. After all, alcohol, which is a more dangerous drug, has been legal since prohibition was reversed.

Leading the musical charge for marijuana activism is Chief Greenbud, a Nashville-based singer/songwriter who, for the last several years, has been garnering a strong following amongst not only the “pot underground,” but more mainstream musical enthusiasts as well. CGB 3, his latest CD, is a strong project filled with both party songs and messages about the need to legalize marijuana, protecting your rights during a traffic stop and more.

Starting off the CD is “Life, Liberty and a Real Good Time.” It is a powerful, upbeat song about our right to pursue happiness and why we should be able to do it with a fatty in our hand. This is a song that should be played again and again before congress whenever the question of legalization comes up.

On an album full of party songs, “I’m So Messed Up” is a good one. It’s a straight up, full-force “let’s just have fun” song. It’s funny, it’s catchy and kitchy, and an enjoyable tune.

*** PARENTAL ADVISORY *** “Drug Bust,” contains one of the funniest lyrics on the album when talking about what happens when getting arrested: “He threw me down on the ground / so I asked him for a reach-around / I might as well get jerked off / since it looks like I’m getting fucked.” ‘Nuf said! It made me laugh and it will likely do the same for you.

In my opinion, there are three strong hits with the potential to climb the charts on the album. The first one is “Smoke As Much As You Like.” While it is still a niche song, it has a great beat, strong lyrics and is just a fun song to listen to while you have your buzz on. The title has even become one of the in-demand t-shirts sold by The Chief.

Another song, “I Need A Beach,” is pure Jimmy Buffet. It’s a mainstream, radio-ready song that Jimmy, himself, would likely enjoy and perhaps even cut for one of his albums. It’s well written, has strong melodies and, simply put, is a really great song.

Closing out the CD is another song I believe has serious potential IF… (note to CGB: rewrite the lyrics for mainstream radio and the “if” becomes “when”). ”Walk To Jamaica” is a Kenny Chesney tune, or perhaps Uncle Kracker’s answer to Chesney’s “When The Sun Goes Down.” It has a fantastic beat, powerful melody and that “potential” for phenomenal lyrics. Okay – it’s a good song as is. There, I said it. BUT – it has some lyrics in it that will keep it from mainstream radio where it could easily find itself sitting on top of the Billboard Country and crossover charts.

CD Review – CGB Vol. 2

Written By: Dan Harr

At 4:20pm this afternoon I plugged Chief Greenbud 2 into the CD player, kicked back with a couple friends and proceeded to laugh for the next 60 minutes. Chief Greenbud has released his sophomore album and, as is needed in the music industry to succeed, stepped up to the microphone and taken the new work to a higher level.

Okay, let me clarify that… when I say “higher” level, I mean it literally. The pot humor is even funnier than Greenbud’s first CD (which, itself, was exceptionally humorous) while the quality of the lyrics and music remain – well – high. Along with original melodies, the Chief effectively parodies several top artists on this CD including Alan Jackson (“It’s 4:20 Somewhere”) and Brad Paisley (“I’m Gonna Get High”). The lyrics are original and unique and the musicianship – on both parodies and originals – is top notch.

Musically, my favorite song on the CD is “Toke and Bounce.” I really like the chorus progressions. Lyrically, “I Like To Smoke Weed” is my favorite. The irony of it is in the comparisons of alcohol effects versus those of marijuana, and how alcohol is legal whereas pot isn’t. Chief Greenbud sends a message and there are many who should listen to what he has to say – whether you like pot or not, it makes sense. Another “positive pot message” is found in “Why Can’t We All Get A Bong.”

Cheech and Chong watch out! You definitely have competition in the marijuana humor category, and it’s being performed by an award winning artist. That’s right. The Chief has three GMMA’s under his belt as well as a High Times Doobie Award nomination, and in June 2009 won four American Marijuana Music Awards. Okay, so they’re not Grammys, but just wait – word has it he’s been entered for nomination consideration in the comedy category so who knows what’s up next for this artist.

As with the first album, I recommend this one to anyone who likes comedy and everyone who likes niche marijuana humor. I can’t wait for Chief Greenbud #3…
