Country Bumpkin recorded by Cal Smith written by Don Wayne
C He walked up to the bar and parked his C7 F C Lanky frame upon a tall barstool G7 And with a long soft southern drawl said C I'll just have a glass of anything that's cool
A barroom girl with hard and knowing eyes C7 F C Slowly looked him up and down G7 And she thought I wonder how on earth C That country bumpkin found his way to town
C7 F And she said hello country bumpkin G7 C How's the frost out on the pumpkin C7 F I've seen some sights but man you're something G7 C Where'd you come from country bumpkin
It was just a short year later in a bed C7 F C Of joy-filled tears yet death-like pain G7 Into this wondrous world of many wonders C One more wonder came
That same woman's face was wrapped up C7 F C In a raptured look of love and tenderness G7 As she marveled at the soft and warm C And cuddly boy child feeding at her breast
F And she said hello country bumpkin G7 C Fresh as frost out on the pumpkin C7 F I've seen some sights but babe you're something G7 C Mama loves her country bumpkin
Forty years of hard work later C7 F C In a simple quiet and peaceful country place G7 The heavy hand of time had not erased C The raptured wonder from the woman's face
She was lying on her death bed C7 F C Knowing fully well her race was nearly run G7 But she softly smiled and looked into C The sad eyes of her husband and her son
F And she said so long country bumpkin G7 C The frost is gone now from the pumpkin C7 F I've seen some sights and life's been something G7 C See you later country bumpkin
