Sorry pot lovers, this song was cash, not your stash. 
 
According to some sources, the original title of this song was "Little Green Back" (a "green back" or "greenback" refers to paper money). In fact, the lyrics in this song don't include the word "bag" at all. The record label misprinted the title on the single when it was released, and the song forever after was known under this misnomer. 
 
Notice how all the other lyrics rhyme properly - kind/mind, day/way, find/behind, but then we have track/bag? Now compare the rhyming pattern if we use "back instead of "bag": 
"Lookin' BACK on the TRACK  
For a little green BACK 
Got to FIND just the KIND 
For losin' my MIND" 
 
"Lookin' back on the TRACK For a little green BAG" just doesn't work in the song. 
 
(Lyrics) 
Yeah 
 
Lookin' back on the track  
For a little green back 
Got to find just the kind for losin' my mind 
Outta sight in the night, outta sight in the day 
Lookin' back on the track, gonna do it my way 
 
Outta sight in the night, outta sight in the day 
Lookin' back on the track, gonna do it my way 
Look back 
 
Lookin' for some happiness but there is only loneliness to find 
Jump to the left, turn to the right 
Lookin' up stairs, lookin' behind
