​Wonder Could I Live There Anymore

This song is by Wynn Stewart and appears on the album It's A Beautiful Day (1970) and on the box set Wishful Thinking (2000).

Have you ever been awaken by the crowing of a rooster
While the night is still heavy on the ground
And the voice of Uncle Ben seems to break the morning silence
Bringing light to windows all around

It's time to rise and shine and start another hard working day
Get the cows in and start the milking chores
It's nice to think about it and maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore

Something 'bout the smell of cornbread a 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 she ain't got the time
'Cause she's a fixing dad his supper he's a working over time
Tryin' to pay our bill at the grocery store
It's nice to think about it and maybe even visit
But I wonder could I live there anymore
I think about my childhood and of my old hometown
And I wonder could I live there anymore
