Lyrics of Juniors Farm

You should have seem me with the poker man
I had a honey and I bet a grand
Just in the nick of time I looked at his hand
I was talking to an Eskimo
Said he was hoping for a fall of snow
When up popped a sea lion ready to go

Chorus
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I wanna lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm

At the Houses of Parliament
Ev'rybody's talking 'bout the President
We all chip in for a bag of cement
Ollie Hardy should have had more sense
He bought a gee-gee and he jumped the fence
All for the sake of a couple of pence

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I wanna lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I wanna lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Everybody tag along

I took my bag into a grocer's store
The price is higher than the time before
Old man asked me "Why is it more?"
I said "You should have seem me with the poker man
I had a honey and I bet a grand
Just in the nick of time I looked at his hand

Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I wanna lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm

Let's go, let's go
Down to Junior's Farm where I wanna lay low
Low life, high life, oh let's go
Take me down to Junior's Farm
Everybody tag along
Take me down to Junior's Farm

Take me back, take me back
I wanna go there...

'Junior's Farm' is a song written by Paul McCartney and recorded by Paul McCartney and Wings. A number-three hit single in the US, it was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in 1974, while the band was staying at the farm of Curly Putman Jr., which accounts for the title. The song continued McCartney and Wings' success after the 'Band on the Run' album. It made #16 on the British charts.

A special full-colour photo was taken for this single's picture sleeve, which featured the members of Wings dressed in appropriate costumes from the song's lyrics (for example, Geoff Britton as a poker dealer and Denny Laine as the 'Eskimo'). However, the photo only appeared on the picture sleeve of the single in Spain. In the UK and the US, Apple Records released the single without any picture sleeve, apparently as a cost-reduction move. In some other countries in Europe, a black-and-white band photo was used instead (see alternate cover).

The B-side, 'Sally G,' was also a Top 20 hit on the US charts, peaking at #17. Although 'Junior's Farm' was never released on one of McCartney's original albums, 'Sally G' was released in 1993 on 'Wings at the Speed of Sound' in The Paul McCartney Collection.

This was the last Wings (or McCartney) release on Apple Records.
