And the voice of Uncle Ben Seems to break the morning's silence Bringing lights to windows all around Well, it's time to rise and shine And start another hard work day Get the cows in and start The milking chores It's nice to think about it Maybe even visit But I wonder could I Live there anymore Something 'bout the smell of Cornbread cooking on a wood stove Seems to bring a picture to my mind Of a little three room house With Mama in the kitchen But she can't stop to talk Ain't got the time She's a fixing Daddy's supper He's a working overtime Trying to pay our bill At the grocery store It's nice to think about it Maybe even visit But I wonder could I Live there anymore As I think about my childhood And of my old hometown I don't really miss them like before It's nice to think about it Maybe even visit But I wonder could I Live there anymore
