Old Country Songs

Wooden Chair by the window
Gibson on my lap
And the time I spend strumming
Is never coming back
The sun is shining on me
Evening won’t be long
I’m living in the city
Singing old country songs

Well my mind tends to wander
Round this time of day
All the way back to my old country ways
Where the wood stove would crackle
Against the north wind
Our thoughts were as warm as the house we were in

I left this old city far behind
When me and my sweetheart
Had a country frame of mind
And we left with our youth
For uneven ground
You can’t imagine
All the things that we found

Everything keeps evolving
It’s never quite clear
How we left long ago
Just to find ourselves here
It’s when that afternoon sunlight
Is shining on me
I seem to wander
Back to the country

Heartfelt and beautiful! That clean, "exposed" style is very courageous, if you know what I mean. (love the whistle too )

Just another great one Gregg. I really like the lyrics ...things I have thought many times, but not able to get it down like you can. Verne

The sound is very Townes Van Zandt... I was listening from the other when it first came on and I thot it WAS TVZ. Like an Irish TVZ.
