Loretta Lynn - Country Bumpkin Lyrics

He walked into the bar
And parked his lanky frame upon a tall bar stool
With a long soft southern drawl
Said, I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool.

A barroom girl with wise and knowing eyes
Slowly looked me up and down
And she said, I wonder how on earth
That country bumpkin found his way to town.

And 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 you come from country bumpkin?

Just a short year later in a bed of joy
Filled tears and death like pain
Into this wondrous world of many wonders
Another wonder came.

That same woman's face was wrapped up
In a raptured look of love and tenderness
As I marvelled 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 pumpkins
I've seen some sights but babe you're somethin'
Mommy 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 my woman's face.

She was lying on her death bed
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 I said, So long country bumpkins
The frost is gone now from the pumpkins
I've seem some sights and life's been somethin'.
See you later country bumpkins.

See you later country bumpkins....

    Dude Alan Jackson doesn't have songs like that. I grew up on Alan Jackson.

    Alan Jackson is considered a traditionalist.

  20. Shiny Shine

    Clasic Country is the country i like ((i also like true country)) that new country is just a bunch of crap

    Kenny Dobbins

    There are still a few traditional style artists.

    Drew Morgan

    That's the truth. They simply can't sing from the heart like they use to when songs were real meaning.
