Thinking about a farm I lived in when I was young.
Do pictures of cows and barns remind you of a much simpler time?
Do you ever wish that you could travel back,
Back to the country corners of your mind?
Memories of goodness and happiness may you never lack.

Are you longing in your heart for the good old days,
Walking through fields where the Jersey cows graze?
In your minds eye do you see the old farm?
Linger their a little longer, it can do you no harm.

Ladies sitting at the table in a bright yellow kitchen,
Coffee and apple pie aromas filling the room.
Men in the parlor, manly conversations they are pitching,
Children playing marbles and jacks while lots of candy they consume.

Oh these pictures can bring you back, in your mind they are instilled,
To a time when your pantry was stocked and baskets always filled,
Under your roof was an abundance of love and very little strife,
Where Gods embers of warmth and glory filled every part of your life.
