Lyrics:He walked into the bar and parked his lanky frame upon a tall barstool
And with a long soft
Southern drawl said
"I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool"
A barroom girl
with hard and knowing eyes slowly looked him up and down
And she thought "I wonder how on
earth
That country bumpkin found his way to town"

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 ya come from, country bumpkin?"

It was just a short year
later in a bed of joy-filled tears yet 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 marveled 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
pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights but, babe, you're somethin'"
"Mamma 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

And she said "So long,
country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
"I've seen some sights
and life's been somethin'"
"See you later, country bumpkin"

She said "So long,
country bumpkin"
"The frost is gone now from on the pumpkin"
FADE
"I've seen
some sights and life's been somethin
