Song Description

It was a beautiful fall day in Manitoba and I was driving home to Winnipeg.

Story Behind the Song

I was driving home from Reston, Manitoba on Highway 2 from an Artist in the Schools project and saw a poor dead racoon. The rest of the tale unfolded as written.

Lyrics

Poor Racoon

Poor Racoon in the middle of the road
He's not going anywhere real soon
Poor Racoon

Poor Racoon in the middle of the road
He's not going anywhere real soon
Poor Racoon

Two black dogs rounding up the cows
Bringing the cows on home

Two black dogs rounding up the cows
Bringing the cows on home

Geese are flying in the sky
Leaving for their second home Bye-bye

Geese are flying in the sky
Leaving for their second home Bye-bye

Old barn standing there
Old barn standing there

My friend's mom said if that old barn could talk
Oh what stories it could share

Old barn standing there

Me I'm driving home
Me I'm driving home
Me I'm driving home

Looking at the sunset in my rear view mirror

Looking at the sunset in my rear view mirror

Still thinking about that poor racoon

Poor Racoon in the middle of the road
He's not going anywhere real soon
Poor Racoon
Poor Racoon
Poor Racoon
