"Country Bumpkin" as written by and Donald Wayne Choate....
He walked into the bar and parked his lanky frame upon a tall barstool
With a long soft Southern drawl said
"I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool"
A bar room girl with hard and knowing eyes slowly looked him up and down
And she thought "I wonder how on earth
That country bumpkin found his way to town"

She said "Hello, country bumpkin"
"How's the frost out on the pumpkin?"
"I've seen some sights but, man, you're somethin'"
"Where'd ya come from, country bumpkin?"

It was just a short year later in a bed of joy-filled tears yet death-like pain
Into this wondrous world of many wonders one more wonder came
That same woman's face was wrapped up
In a raptured look of love and tenderness
As she marveled at the soft and warm and cuddly boy-child feeding at her breast

And she said "Hello, country bumpkin"
"Fresh as frost out on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights but, babe, you're somethin'"
"Mama loves her country bumpkin"

Forty years of hard work later in a simple, quiet and peaceful country place
The heavy hand of time had not erased
The raptured wonder from the woman's face
She was lying on her deathbed knowing fully well her race was nearly run
But she softly smiled and looked into the sad eyes of her husband and her son

And she said "So long, country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights and life's been somethin'"
"See you later, country bumpkin"

She said "So long, country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights and life's been somethin'"

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my mom and dad. He was a country boy, she a city girl. The were so in love, my girlfriend (now wife) met them, and said it was the purist love she had ever seen. I was so blessed that they love each other and my brother and I so much. Dad had heart problems and could hardly get out of bed, but when my mom got terminal cancer he got up to help her, one night I was paying with him for them, he died on the phone, I though he had hung up. I went to help put her in a nursing home, I asked her what she would change if she could, she said "Nothing, with your dad by my side, life was wonderful". She followed him to Heaven a week later, 2 weeks after he died. I think of them often, even after 10 years, and love them, always.
