Red Dirt Cotton


I took a ride the other day
Along those roads so red
Saw puffy white cotton bolls
As down the road I sped

Leaves were turning gracefully
Along the side of the road
Saw cows on the brown parched land
As across the field they strode

This day I heard distant murmurs
No sound of a human word
Only a cow mooing softly
Or the song of a single bird

But there’s nothing I like better
Than to take a country drive
I love the time with nature
As a new season subtly arrives

I enjoy a quiet rural drive
Past wheat fields so tall and golden
And down the road a ways I see
The beautiful Red Dirt Cotton!
