Song Description

Contrasts fast life of the city with slow life of the country, emphasizes the importance of slowing down and building relationships with neighbors.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song for my neighbor lady, Mary Sauls, who has gone on to be with the Lord now, but she's the first friend I made when I moved to our little country town of Callahan, FL. She invited me to sit on her porch swing and visit one day, and we bec

Very cute song.... And you mentioned a cat, that was perfect!! I really love the freedom of this song... how the tempo drops out and then you pick it back up. Like you have your friends over telling stories with a banjo, acoustic and fiddle. I just love this song, it has me humming along and enjoying your little diddie. I am most enjoying your vocal treatments. This is exactly what I want to hear when I review in "Folk". Splendid from top to bottom.... IIII waaaaaant toooooo.... Move out to the country... Sittin on a porch swing... somethin with a cat. Brilliance in simplicity, delivery and story.

Cute happy vocal delivery!

Lyrics

Livin' in the city I never got to taste
The pleasures of the slow life swallered up in haste
Jumpin' in the car and runnin' place to place
Livin' in the fast lane, keepin' up the pace. (But now I'm...)

Chorus: Sittin' on the porch swing, chewin' on the fat
Passin' time of day, cuddlin' with the cat
I don't wanna hurry, ?cause sittin' here with you
Why, Hit's the most important thing I've got to do.

Well, movin' to the country, it was pretty wise
It made me stop and think and finally realize
It?s time to put my feet up, gaze into your smile
Study all the wrinkles, soakin' up your style. (While I watch you...) CHORUS

Sometimes I ask God what I'm s'posed to do
The day's work is done and the supper dishes, too.
Hear His friendly voice say ?Walk on down the road.
Visit with your neighbor. Lighten up her load.? (Just do some...) CHORUS

Well, if I ever move back into the town
I hope that I'll remember everything I found
Sittin' on the porch swing, sun a sinkin' low
Listen?in? to your heart beat , steady, now and slow
(While we?re just...) CHORUS
