7. One Toke Over the Line - Brewer & Shipley (1970)

Sitting downtown in a railway station/ One toke over the line.

The folky duo - Mike Brewer and Tom Shipley - had a No. 10 hit with this catchy tune that popularized the word "toke," for a drag of pot on a joint or pipe. The song appears on Tarkio. Covered by Dick Dale and Gail Farrell on The Lawrence Welk Show and the Rainmakers (1998).
