~ I'm Gonna Sit On the Porch ~

~ I'm Gonna Sit On the Porch ~

I'm gonna sit on the porch and pick on my ol' guitar
I'm gonna lay on my back and laugh at my lucky stars
And then I'm gonna fly away and never come back someday
Unless I thought I would land right close to where you are

Well if I thought anybody really cared, I'd send back word
Strapped to the leg of a transcelestial bird
I wonder if I really ever did leave
How many would there be to grieve
How'd they react to the word

~Dulcimer and Guitar instrumental ~

Well I wouldn't want to hurt a solitary soul
I have still got all 6'2 in control
But when my obligation's low; is a greasy uphill road
And pleasin' everybody but me, is my first goal

I want to sit on the porch and pick on my ol' guitar
And just hope your hangin' loose wherever you are
And for the joy you brought to me, this song I sung for thee
While I sit on the porch and pick on my ol' guitar

"Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
