From the recording LIVE in a Field of Bluegrass

Lyrics

Written by: Eddy Raven
 
When was the last timeYou got up before the sunAnd watched while the night and dayMelted into one?
When was the last timeYou really looked at rainDripping down the gutterSplashing on the window-pane?
My fondest memoriesAre tied around these thingsSunday school, bedtime rulesGrandma's squeaky swing
Sneaking out behind the barnMy love would meet me thereTripping in the hallwayOver Grandpa's rocking chair
Back in the countryNow I know you're gonna sayBack in the countryDon't you wish that you had stayed
Back in the countryWhere the roses still grow wildBack in the countryWhere you walked those country miles
When was the last timeYou saw sundown through a treeSitting on the front porchIn a cool evenin' breeze
When was the last timeThat you heard a Bobwhite songWhen was the last timeI'll bet it's been too long
Back in the countryNow I know you're gonna sayBack in the countryDon't you wish that you had stayed
Back in the countryWhere the roses still grow wildBack in the countryWhere you walked those country miles
