Soon the pines will be falling everywhere
Village children fight each other for a share
And the 6:09 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 doing 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 in a truck that's going home.
Down at the well they've got a new machine
The foreman says it cuts man-power by fifteen
Yeah, but that ain't natural well so old Clay would say
You see 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 creaking on the porch
Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch...
