DOWN AT THE COUNTRY STORE

  

A group of friends meet once a week

To tell tall tales and more

While busy playing games of Whist           

Down at the country store

 

All six are in their seventies

And friends from days of yore

They drink a bit and chew a cud

Down at the country store

 

They liked to spit, but never miss

An old brass cuspidor

There they cuss without rebuff

Down at the country store

 

When they were young they made a pact . . .

An oath, to which they swore

And they discuss that very thing

Down at the country store

 

They laugh a lot about the past

From chuckle to a roar

What’s said is often whispered there

Down at the country store

 

I’ve seen a tear slip from an eye

And drop down to the floor

When one retells an old old tale

Down at the country store

 

They help each other when there’s need

No matter what the chore

Then pat each other on the back

Down at the country store
