Arkansas Dreamin' (A poem I wrote) August 31 2014, 6 Comments
that special heart place I've always had
rollin' away still makes me sad
of watery camp songs sung for the weak
kisses on hilltops that make you feel glad
that we are in Arkansas, natural and rad.
even the bark on the trees of the hills iron-clad
are totally Arkansas natural and rad.
whether you grab for your rifle, or grab for your fiddle
all y'all should print up a newspaper ad
saying: "Thank you Arkansas, you're natural and rad!"
will stick there inside me in so many ways
we hang out in dreams both happy and sad
even Arkansas dreaming is natural and rad
but the thing i love most about your whole stash
is even the ones you popped out that turned bad
are totally Arkansas, natural and rad.
