A newborn kitten
And a calf to feed
That’s the laughter in my life right now
It brings a smile to my face.
Sometimes a tractor tire breaks
A cow escapes the fence
But we pray to God that all goes well in the end.
My grandmother grows our vegetables
In her garden
We play in the cornfield for fun
This simple life makes us smile.
Summertime brings no vacation
We’re in the fields making hay
Tempers fly when something breaks
But in the end, it gets done.
They’re painting the house down the street
Everyone wonders what colour it’s going to be
Conversation focuses on the crops
Everyone knows everyone.
Because I’m a country girl
And a country girl I’ll always be
I was born and I was raised a country girl
In my small country town.
