lyrics

Livin’ in the country
Smells like pigs and rain.
Goin’ down that gravel road
To raise a little Cain.

Possum’s in the dog food
Cat is eatin’ corn
Brother’s smashin’ power poles
Boys go blow your horn.

Grandpa’s in the basement
To give the family space
Carvin’ birds and writin’ songs
And prayin’ for god’s grace

Possum’s in the dog food
Cat is eatin’ corn
Brother’s smashin’ power poles
Boys go blow your horn.

Homemade looms and afternoons
Of makin’ people people sing
Throwin’ apples from the tree
Through the tire swing

Possum’s in the dog food
Cat is eatin’ corn
Brother’s smashin’ power poles
Boys go blow your horn.

Possum’s in the dog food
Cat is eatin’ corn
Brother’s smashin’ power poles
Boys go blow your horn.
