    Lyrics

    I went to the country just the other day
    To see my Uncle Bill and sorta pass the time away
    I asked him how he'd been since at last I'd passed his way
    He rubbed his chin and here's what he had to say
    My wife's been sick and the young'ns too and I'm durn
    near down with the flu
    The cow's gone dry and the hens won't lay but we're
    still a livin' so everything's okay
    The hogs took the cholera and they've all done died
    The bees got mad and they left the hive
    The weevils got the corn and the rain rotted the hay
    But we're still a livin' so everything's okay
    The porch rotted down that's more expense
    The durned old mule he tore down the fence
    The mortage is due and I can't pay but we're still
    a livin' so everything's okay
    The cow broke in the field and ate up the beans
    The durn rabbits they got the turnip greens
    And my mainlaw just moved in to stay but we're still
    a livin' so everything's okay
    My land's so poor so hard and yeller
    You have to sit on a sack of fertilizer to raise an umbrella
    And it rains out here nearly every day but we're still
    a livin' so everything's okay
    The well's gone dry and I have to tote the water
    Up from the spring about a mile and a quarter

    My helper he quit for lack of pay but we're still a
    livin' so everything's okay
    The house it leaks it needs a new top when it rains
    it wets everything we got
    The chimney fell down just the other day but we're
    still a livin' so everything's okay

    The corn meals gone and the meat's run out
    Got nothin' to kill to put in the smokehouse
    The preacher's comin' sunday - to spend the day
    But - we're still a-livin' - so ever'thing's okay.

    The canned stuff's spoiled - else the jar's got broke
    And all we got left is one old billy goat
    We're gonna have a new baby about the first of may
    But - we're still a-livin' - so ever'thing's okay.

    My crop it rotted - in the ground
    I asked for another loan but the banker turned me down
    But - we're still a-livin' and we're prayin' for better days
    So - after all, ever'thing's in purty good shape.
