    Lyrics

    (Larry Kingston - Frank Dycus)

    I've never had a pair of shoes that weren't all hand-me-downs
    And daddy's morning coffee came from ol' left over ground
    My mama wore no jewelry or any storebought stuff
    And home was on a hillside forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    Forty miles back in Missoury there's a different way of life
    Where a man thinks of his neighbor and not his neighbor's wife
    Life is far from fancy sometimes mighty rough
    But contentment makes it worth it forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    Our only family treasure was a beatup radio
    But it took us to the places where we knew we'd never go
    We never had much money but we always had enough
    Cause money never mattered much forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    Forty miles back in Missoury there's a different way of life
    Where a man thinks of his neighbor and not his neighbor's wife
    Life is far from fancy sometimes mighty rough
    But contentment makes it worth it forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Well, nearly every winter when the snow is on the ground
    And the roads would all be closed and we couldn't get to town
    But if daddy had his tabaccer grandma had her snuff
    Then the winters didn't seem so long forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    Forty miles back in Missoury there's a different way of life
    Where a man thinks of his neighbor and not his neighbor's wife
    Life is far from fancy sometimes mighty rough
    But contentment makes it worth it forty miles from Poplar Bluff.

    Forty miles from Poplar Bluff...
