Wishful look at the peace of a small town life.

Lyrics

Simple Time -
Carlene Thissen, Naples, FL 239-290-5558 carlene_thissen@yahoo.com - C 1013

VERSE 1:

When I was a young girl, I wanted to marry Andy
How different life would be, in a place like Mayberry
Days were peaceful, nights were calm, fireflies in the air
I know I'd be a better me, if I could just live there.

CHORUS:

Small town in a simple time, is where I want to be
Life is easy, that's what I need
This world's complicated, fast lane is overrated
On my mind Is a small town in a simple time

VERSE 2

Church bazaars and county fairs, fishin' at the river
Sittin on a bench, talking about the weather
Evenings after supper, the crickets start hummin'
Outside in the distance, a guitar is softly strumming

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

If I close my eyes and breathe
I'm in the shade of an old oak tree
I smell the grass underneath my feet
Feel the warmth of a country breeze.
