I love

Old Country Singing
Old Town San Diego
Walking through Old Town San Diego, I stopped when I saw a cowboy and a guitar. I climbed up the wooden steps and waited for him to play and sing. He took his time as he strung chords on his guitar. He wasn\’t in any kind of hurry to play a song. 
I waited and watched the people go in and out of the cigar shop. I was the only one waiting except for a couple of guys hanging out, sitting in chairs near the cowboy singer. 
After several minutes, he started strumming a song, singing a tune from the early seventies, the kind of country music Scott played. The older cowboy music not the new kind of country music of today. I didn\’t recognize the song, but my heart did. As soon as he started playing and singing, tears rolled down my face. I tried to hide them and turn away. This morning, I found the lyrics and the original song by Tom T Hall. You can play it here, if you like https://youtu.be/COgEh1u11Yw



I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks

Slow movin\’ trains and rain

I love little country streams, sleep without dreams

Sunday school in May and hay

And I love you too
I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends

Birds of the world and squirrels

I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups

Bourbon in a glass and grass

And I love you too
I love honest open smiles, kisses from a child

Tomatoes on the vine and onions

I love winners when they cry, losers when they try

Music when it\’s good and life

And I love you too
