Elton John Bernie Taupin
Soon the pines will be falling everywhere,
Village children fight each other for a share;
And the six-o-nine goes roaring past the creek,
Deacon Lee prepares his sermon for next week.
I saw Grandma yesterday down at the store,
Well, she's really going fine for eighty-four,
Well, she asked me if some time I'd fix her barn,
Poor old girl, she needs a hand to run the farm.
And it's good old country comfort in my bones,
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known,
Just an old-fashioned feeling fully-grown,
Country comfort's any truck that's going home.
Down at the well they've got a new machine,
The foreman says it cuts man-power by fifteen, But that ain't natural, well, so old Clay would say,
You see he's a horse-drawn man until his dying day.
Now the old fat goose is flying ‚cross the sticks,
The hedgehog‘s done in clay between the bricks,
And the rocking chair's a-creaking on the porch,
Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch
