Elton John - "Country Comfort Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Soon the pines will be falling everywhere

Village children fight each other for a share
And the six-o-nine goes roaring past the creek

Deacon Lee prepares his sermon for next week

I saw grandma yesterday down at the store

Well she's really going fine for eighty four
Well she asked me if sometime I'd fix her barn

Poor old girl she needs a hand to run the farm

And it's good old country comfort in my bones
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known
Just an old-fashioned feeling fully-grown

Country comfort's in a truck that's going home

Down at the well they've got a new machine
The foreman says it cuts man-power by fifteen

You see he's a horse-drawn man until his dying day
Yeah but that ain't natural well so old Clay would say

Now the old fat goose is flying cross the sticks

The hedgehog's done in clay between the bricks

And the rocking chair's creaking on the porch

Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch
