Track Name: Rockin' The Front Porch of Texas
Crossin’ the Red River this morning
Looking out on the valley below
down there in the distant sunrise
waits a gal that I know
A bounty of hair across her shoulders
a glint of humor in her eyes
Fender tele over her belly
she’s singing to the mourning doves

Well she’s rockin the front porch of Texas
sending her song out across this land
Rockin the front porch of Texas
sending out love to her man

Been on the road for 40 days
and I’m feeling kinda spent
givin up hours givin up satisfaction
givin up sleep and this aint even Lent


Then from the console my phone is beeping
and in an instant my hands touch the screen
and into that cab comes a scream of glory
well the passion of a woman who lives in my dreams
Elvira was never on fire like that woman
who is now here in my ears.
Sweet tones of heaven’s glory
and the words that I need in the coming years.

2016 Michael Karns
