    Lyrics

    COUNTRY BUMPKIN
    (Don Wayne)
    « © '74 Tree Publishing »

    He walked into the bar and parked his lanky frame upon a tall bar stool
    With a long soft southern drawl said I'll just have
    a glass of anything that's cool
    A barroom girl with wise and knowing eyes slowly looked me up and down
    And she said I wonder how on earth that country bumpkin
    found his way to town
    And she said hello country bumpkin
    How's the frost out on the pumpkin
    I've seen some sights but man you're somethin'
    Where'd you come from country bumpkin
    Just a short year later in a bed of joy filled tears and death like pain
    Into this wondrous world of many wonders another wonder came
    That same woman's face was wrapped up in a raptured
    look of love and tenderness As I marveled at the soft
    and warm and cuddly boy child feeding at her breast
    And she said hello country bumpkin
    Fresh as frost out on the pumpkins
    I've seen some sights but babe you're somethin'
    Mommy loves her country bumpkin
    Forty years of hard work later in a simple quiet and peaceful country place
    The heavy hand of time had not erased the raptured
    wonder from my woman's face
    She was lying on her death bed knowing fully well her race was nearly run
    But she softly smiled and looked into the sad eyes
    of her husband and her son
    And I said so long country bumpkins
    The frost is gone now from the pumpkins
    I've seem some sights and life's been somethin's
    See you later country bumpkins see you later country bumpkins
