Home In The Country
Bryan Poirier, Manitou Passage Music, ASCAP ©2006

A grass moon is waxing as I drive along this road
Imitating sunlight, it shines the path I hold
Father always told me, Â?Slow up and settle down.Â?
MotherÂ?s voice is saying, Â?Get your feet back on the ground.Â?

Cause there comes a time when time has passed you by
And all that will be left is wonderinÂ? why

Find you a Home in the Country
Let the morning rain fall on the sill
Stars are only brighter if youÂ?re in heaven
You wonÂ?t see your freedom until
You find you a Home in the Country

Life was always easy with no direction known
Love was taken freely as I reaped the seeds IÂ?d sown
But, now my dirty laundry has nowhere to go
ItÂ?s time to wash my dishes and clean off my stove

And IÂ?ll take the wife I never said I would
And IÂ?ll love her like I never thought I could
And IÂ?llÂ?.


I always wonder too far
I always seem to push too hard
But love has slowed me down
And IÂ?ll take a look around
And IÂ?llÂ?.

Chorus Twice

Written as a challenge, someone said, "Try to write a song in one day." By that evening it was done!
Long Song Description:
Written as a challenge, someone said, "Try to write a song in one day." By that evening it was done! I was listening to NPR and heard, "It is a grass moon this time of year and is waxing." I thought that that would be a great start....
