Paul the Lion Poems
Sweet Country Girl And I
My eyes first caught her across the street
She looked like someone I'd fancy to meet
She was wearing a long violet dress
But I was rugged and my hair was a mess
You were wondering who was this cat
Sitting on a rotten bench in a dirty cowboy hat
On his guitar he was trying to play some John Denver song
You laughed because half of his chords were wrong
She walked up and asked if I wanted a cuppa joe
I boyishly smiled and said 'I reckon so'
I strolled down the dirt road with this girl in a pretty gown
She said there wasn't a single paved street in ...
Country Folks' Lament
I been livin' on milk and bread
I save the eggs so the children are fed
I hold my head high so my wife don't see
What these hard times been doin' to me
We sing songs by the river where the frog's a croakin'
We smile and laugh so our spirits ain't broken
We read stories to the children by candlelight
Before we send 'em to bed at night
