Brewer & Shipley were a folk rock duo formed in Los Angeles- “One Toke Over The Line” was their only Top 40 hit. Mike Brewer explains the origins of this song- “One day we were pretty much stoned and all and Tom says, “Man, I’m one toke over the line tonight.” I liked the way that sounded and so I wrote a song around it.”
Believe it or not department- this song was done on the Lawrence Welk Show- did they know what they were singing about?
