Country Comfort

Soon the pines will be falling everywhere
Village children fight each other for a share
And the 609 goes roaring past the creek
Deacon Lee prepares his sermon for next week

I saw Grandma yesterday down at the store
Well, she’s really going fine for eighty-four
Well she asked me if sometime I’d fix her barn
Poor old girl, she needs a hand to run the farm

And it’s good old country comfort in my bones
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known
Just an old-fashioned feeling fully grown
Country comfort’s any truck that’s goin’ home

Down at the well they’ve got a new machine
The foreman says it cuts manpower by fifteen
“But that ain’t natural”, well so old Clay would say
He’s a horse-drawn man until his dying day

Now the old fat goose is flying ‘cross the sticks
The hedgehog’s done in clay between the bricks
And the rocking chair’s a-creaking on the porch
Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch
