Lyrics

WHEN ANGELS SANG (IN MY BACK YARD)
Ac 2003 Rex Poindexter & Craig Lackey, 323-654-6163 or 310-480-4343

Stroud Oklahoma, where a red road leads
To the old stone home, where a back porch breeze
Can carry the sound of a harp and a fiddle
About a country mile...

Bill Kongable was in charge of the grill
Pat's potato salad had too much dill
Momma made her green bean cassarole
Daddy just made us..smile...

Then when the sun would go down
Folks passed that six-string around--

When angels sang, in my back yard
And fingers danced, on that old guitar
And love--- raised us up!
When angels sang, in my back yard
When angels sang, in my back yard

Firefly stingers, put em on your fingers
Glow in the dark while the melodies linger
Daddy, pick me up, spin me faster till I'm
Flyin' off the ..ground...

Kids throw a blanket, on the old clothes line
Make a little fort where we crawl inside
Snug as a bug in a rug in the middle
Of a heavenly sound...

Mom lifts the flap up, to peep
Makes sure we're safe off to sleep

When angels sang, in my back yard
And fingers danced, on that old guitar
And love----- Raised us up!
When angels sang, in my back yard
When angels sang, in my back yard

Those magic evenings
Those cozy feelings
Please, take me back to then--
