down home.

don't read any further.
scroll to the bottom of this post, turn up your speakers, and hit play on the youtube video.
you must listen along as you read.

ok, now you may continue :)

around here,
the weekends are spent outdoors.
the sun shines bright,
the fields are planted with crops,
& the roads are made of clay.

we drive 4x4 trucks,
sunglasses dangle from our necks,
we let our hair blow in the wind,
& a Sunday drive is with the windows down
and the radio up.

nothing beats a good, country song.

the sky is blue,
the clouds are white,
pine trees are abundant,
rain is scarce,
& the bugs are plentiful.

"Down home where they know you by name and treat you like family.
Down home a man's good word and a handshake are all you need.
Folks know if they're fallin on hard times they can fall back on..
Those of us raised up down home." {Get the full lyrics, here.}
