 Mike Davis asked for this one. This is one of those great "story songs"


 so typical of country music.


 


 COUNTRY BUMPKIN


 Recorded by CAL SMITH


 


 HE WALKED INTO THE BAR AND PLACED HIS LANKY FRAME UPON A TALL BAR STOOL


 AND WITH A LONG SOFT SOUTHERN DRAWL HE SAID I'LL TAKE A GLASS OF ANYTHING


 THAT'S COOL


 A BAR-ROOM GIRL WITH WISE AND KNOWING EYES SLOWLY LOOKED HIM UP AND DOWN


 AND SHE THOUGHT I WONDER HOW ON EARTH THIS COUNTRY BUMPKIN FOUND HIS WAY


 TO TOWN


 


 (CHORUS 1)


 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


 


 (VERSE 2)


 IT WAS JUST A SHORT YEAR LATER, IN A SWEAT-DRENCHED BED OF JOYFUL TEARS


 AND 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 MARVELLED AT THE SOFT AND WARM AND CUDDLY BOY-CHILD FEEDING AT HER


 BREAST


 


 (CHORUS 2)


 SHE SAID 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


 


 (VERSE 3)


 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 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


 


 (CHORUS 3)


 AND SHE SAID SO LONG COUNTRY BUMPKIN. THE FROST IS GONE NOW FROM THE


 PUMPKIN


 I'VE SEEN SOME SIGHTS AND LIFE'S BEEN SOMETHIN'


 SEE YOU LATER COUNTRY BUMPKIN
