"Country Home"

I wasn’t raised around Country music, 
but I chose it as my life’s work because I like it, 
because it fits my voice and writing style, 
and because I’m too nervous to steal. 

I grew up in a city 
and was exposed to very little Country. 
When I first heard Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, and Lefty Frizzell, 
I was fascinated! 
Maybe you were brought up on Country music, 
but to me it was a whole new thing! 

The imagery in the lyrics held extra drama for me 
because I’d never been to those places. 
Distant places hold a magic. 

Our family took Sunday drives through the countryside. 
We loved it, and I even envied the folks who lived there, 
even though I knew it wasn’t for me. 
I can only take so much peace and quiet. 

But I DO have a country home. 
It's in my songs.

Home - a place in my mind with summertime snow… 
Home - a place in my mind where wintertime flowers grow… 
I can go home in the springtime and see the leaves turn gold, 
Or just drop in and say hello to my folks, 
In a place where they'll never grow old 

Home - a feeling of love that the family gives… 
Home - a place in my mind where Grandpa and Grandma still live… 
Dad's gonna shake my hand, 
I'll get a kiss from Mom, I know. 
Home - a place in my mind where I sometimes go. 

Home - a place in my mind where dandelions blow… 
Home - a tree I can climb and look at the world below… 
I can sit out on the front porch in that squeaky swing, 
Or just drop in to my yesterday house, 
Where little sisters often sing. 

Home - a place in my mind with a kitchen that's warm… 
Home - by the fireside glow, I'm lookin’ out at the storm… 
And when this lonesome traveler's feeling kinda low, 
Home - is a place in my mind where I sometimes go. 
(Repeat and fade)
