I Wonder Could I Live There Anymore

Have you ever been awakened
By the crowing of a rooster
While the night's dew is still heavy on the ground
And the voice of Uncle Ben
Seems to break the morning silence
Ringing lights the windows all around
Well, it's time to rise and shine
And start another hard work day
And get the cows in and start the milking chores
It's time to think about it
Maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore

Something 'bout the smell of cornbread
Cooking on a wood stove
Seems to bring a picture to my mind
Of a little three-room house
With momma in the kitchen
But she can't stop to talk, ain't got the time
She's a-fixin' daddy's supper
He's a-workin' overtime
Trying to pay our bill at the grocery store
It's time to think about it
Maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore

As I think about my childhood
And of my old home town
I don't really miss them like before
It's time to think about it
Maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore
