"A COUNTRY LOVE SONG"
Across the meadow she ran to me
With arms that opened wide-
A surge of love came over me
Like that of rushing tide,
My heart-strings twanged a melody
That I can now recall-
Her footsteps were like thunder from
The Wabash Cannonball!
Her nails were sharpened to a point
And for my eyes they went,
I hit her with my walking stick
As my new shirt she rent,
"Let me speak," I shouted
As she mounted her next assault,
"Those girls you saw me with last night
Believe me, weren't my fault."
Listening not, she scooped some hay
Which there lay idly by,
She took my asthma bottle
And blew pollen in my eye,
And as I sat there crying
With my eyes all turning red,
She grabbed a piece of deadwood
And laid knots upon my head.
Ready to listen finally
Exhausted, she sat down,
My tongue which had been 'tween my teeth
Lay severed on the ground,
A cough, a grunt, a heavy belch
Were the only words I spoke,
To any other human kind
It would have been a joke,
But not to my most loving gal
Who now knew I was true,
Whose heart did melt like candle wax-
When I sang, "I uv oo"...
