lyrics

There was a farm boy grew up in a small town
Had a house on railway at the corner of main
Met himself a lady a blonde haired troubadour
She took his heart away down at the corner street bar

Left that farm boy singing a sad song
For his blonde haired troubadour
He's hoping she’d settle for life in that small town
She’s laying her roots down on every winding road

When the tour was over she came back to him
Got a job serving whiskey at the corner street bar
They made a little home there soon they were married
But a year in that small town and she was feeling fenced in

With that farm Boy singing a sad song...

Saturday evening at the bar on the corner
Another troubadour came rolling in
His voice was earnest songs were true
She was the girl in his stories wanderlust and blue

She headed off with him touring those prairies
Traded the amber waves of grain for a modest skyline
Never returning back to that farm boy
Shattered his small town heart and left him harvesting the tears

Of that farm boy singing a sad song...
