Farm Girl in the Straw

Farm Girl in the Straw ©2017 Robert George BMI

Well, that Chevy over-heated
Just outside her dusty farm
I was fifty miles from Little Rock,
And I held that shiny Glock like a lucky charm

She was hoein’ by the fence line
When I walked up to the gate
She looked kindly on a stranger’s plight,
Told me I could stay the night cos it was getting’ late

Said I’d better sleep out in the barn
Cos she lived with her old granpa
So I propped my head against a wagon-wheel
And with one eye on the road across the field
I dreamt about the long arm of the law
And a farm girl in the straw

It was sometime after midnight
When I saw her silhouette
She was backlit by an amber moon
And we shared a kiss I wouldn’t soon forget

With a wink she said to watch the noise
Cos she lived with her old granpa
O the southern wind was blowin’ cool n soft
As we climbed the ladder to the loft
There’s no tellin’ how much the scarecrow saw
Of the farm girl in the straw

Come the dawn I kissed her deep and said I had to go
Fixed the car and drove it ninety into Mexico
I was wanted for a bank job back in Arkansas
But I couldn’t forget the farm girl in the straw

She almost didn’t recognize me
With that scruffy beard I’d grown
But an untamed flame will always burn
And she was sure that I’d return for the seeds I’d sown

Now her granpa’s restin’ with the Lord
And I’ve learned to live within the law
There’s a bag of hundreds hidden in the barn
Come the spring a baby blessed the farm
And to this day I am still in awe
Of the farm girl in the straw

Man. You are one talented writer!
All the right words and rhyme in the right place with a real clever wit!
I bet you write fast too?
:twisted:
I just joined for free to be able to meet other writers. I have a surplus of unfinished songs at the moment. Trying to find co-writer(s).
If you don't mind me asking...How long have you been writing and a member of TAXI?
Thanks!!

Hi Jason...I've been writing for nearly forty years and I've been posting on Taxi for about fifteen. And I do write fast. I was fairly prolific until a few years ago. I just finished two novels and am all but retired from lyrics now. I do write one here and there, though. :)
