As My World Turns

When I hear the Robin in spring,

Repertories of the Mockingbird,

Quails, repeating ‘bout “Old Bob White”,

Pheasants rising from new corn shocks,

I go back!

When I think of that first girlfriend

Having to walk lonely hollows,

Chancing a shower of hostile stones,

Because my brogans were too loud,

I go back!

As I see the sun sink westward,

As though it fell into the sea,

The reds, the pinks, the orange glows,

The purple haze that follows this,

I go back!

As I hear a true mountain tune,

Played by a spot-on balladeer,

I follow brooks meandering,

To that cabin upon Shack Ridge,

I go back,

To days of childhood, roaming ‘round,

Over the hills, deep hollows of

Old Virginia where I was born,

Another place I could not love!

I Go Back!
