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

This has to be the unmistakeable Kate Carpenter. I like everything about this wonderfully quirky song. Reminds me of the late and much missed British singer songwriter Wally Whyton. As always, Kate's songs are beautifully crafted and timeless and this one energises a sleeping smile. I very much respect her talent and the personality of her songs.

    - Robin James Rendell

I like the sound of this piece, sounds a lot like Ms. Kate - great message as well. The banjo really sounds great too. This is really a great children's song - sounds a bit like I'm a little tea pot.

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
