Country Bumpkin  Carl Smith

He [D]walked into the bar and parked his lanky [D7]frame up[G]on a tall bars[D]tool
And with a [A7]long soft southern drawl said “I’ll just have a glass of anything that’s [D]cool”
A [D]barroom girl with hard and knowing eyes [D7]slowly [G]looked him up and [D]down
And she [A7]thought,“I wonder how on earth this country bumpkin found his way to [D]town?”

Chorus I:
And she said, “Hello, country [G]bumpkin”
[A7]“How’s the frost out on the [D]pumpkin?”
[D]“I’ve seen some [D7]sights but man, you’re [G]somethin’”
[A7]“Where’d you come from, country [D]bumpkin”

It was just a short year later in a bed of joy-filled tears, yet deathlike 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 marveled at the soft and warm and cuddly boy-child feeding at her breast

Chorus II:
And 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”

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 deathbed 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 III:
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”

Repeat chorus III
