The PEACE of Country Living

“A quiet secluded life in the country…such is my idea of happiness.”    Leo Tolstoy

I’ve always been a country girl at heart even when I wasn’t living out here in the rolling hills and farmland of western New York. There’s a very special kind of peace about country life, close neighbors, cows in the barn and horses in the pasture. I was reminded in creating this piece of John Denver’s hit song “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.” Lyrics by John Martin Sommers.

Thank God I’m A Country Boy

Well, life on a farm is kinda laid back,
ain’t much an old country boy like me can’t hack.
It’s early to rise, early in the sack thank God I’m a country boy.
Well, a simple kind of life never did me no harm,
raising me a family and working on the farm.
My days are all filled with an easy country charm, thank God I’m a country boy…
