Country Girl

by: Rebecca Taylor

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.

Country Keeps Me Sane

by: Rebecca Taylor (written in 2005)

Life’s so crazy

Some days it’s just hazy

I work all day

Waiting for pay day to get me through

But country keeps me sane

Walking down Ben Cartwright’s memory lane

Singing “Huckleberry” with Toby Keith

Watching “Big Valley” with Heath

Going to school, going to work

Trying to keep my cool

Listening to so many complain

I feel so drained

But country keeps me sane

A long walk past the cornfield

Writing a novel of days gone by

Reading a Louis L’Amour book

The phone keeps ringing

The kettle’s singing

I burnt supper

I just can’t seem to find the right picker upper

But country keeps me sane

Watching a John Wayne movie

Hearing a Kenny Rogers song

Watching horses run in their pasture

Some days seem to drag on forever

I forgot to format the letter

My head feels like it could bust

Nobody’ll agree to what we’ve discussed

Thank goodness, country keeps me sane

For the cup of campfire coffee

The sound of the guitar

And the fresh outdoor air.
