The track has become a fan-favorite amongst fans and was included in the We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll greatest hits album.
Won’t you listen?
When I first met you, didn’t realize
I can’t forget you or your surprise
You introduced me to my mind
And left me wanting you and your kind
I love you. Oh you know it.
My life was empty forever on a down
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf – though you can’t hear,
Come on now – try it out
Straight people don’t know what you’re about
They put you down and shut you out
You gave to me a new belief
And soon the world will love you sweet leaf.
- The tape-looped coughing in the beginning of the song is that of Tony Iommi after Ozzy gave him a joint.
- The title of the song is taken from a Irish cigarette package with the slogan "It's the sweet leaf".
