Trent Tomlinson – Henry Cartwright’s Prayer And Produce Stand

Hoorde deze zojuist uit mijn speakers galmen en vond dat ik deze moest delen. Deze track met de volgens mij unieke titel  Henry Cartwright’s Prayer And Produce Stand is van Trent Tomlinson (Blytheville, Arkansas). Trent heeft tot nu toe één album uitgebracht (Country Is My Rock 2006). Dit Henry Cartwright… zal zeer waarschijnlijk te vinden zijn op zijn nieuwe album A Guy Like Me dat gepland staat voor later dit jaar.

Songtekst:

Verse 1:

He’s got an I love Jesus fish stuck on his bumper,
With a rebel flag rippin’ like a razor in the wind,
A sign sellin’ watermelons and cucumbers,
And common advice you might need now and then,

Bridge:

Ya, He parks there off the pavement just slightly in a ditch,
He’s got a two-tone tattered lawn chair where he smokes his pipe and sits,
And when the sun goes down the price goes down, and everybody knows,
There ain’t one second that’ll tick past seven that he ain’t headed home

Chorus:

But you can come back early in the morning,
Get what you need fresh from the garden,
A little less ripe if that’s how you like it,
If you ain’t tried it you better not knock it,
If you didn’t go to church the Sunday before,
You can hear all about it and a little bit more,
About what it takes to make a man a man,
Down at Henry Cartwright’s back home, home grown, prayer and produce stand

Verse 2:

His daddy passed down the ground to raise it,
The know how and the plow he used to make it,
And when you sink your teeth in it’s a sin to taste it,
And if you had to stand in line it’s worth the wait!

Bridge:

Ya, He parks there off the pavement just slightly in a ditch,
He’s got a two-tone tattered lawn chair where he smokes his pipe and sits,
And when the sun goes down the price goes down, and everybody knows,
There ain’t one second that’ll tick past seven that he ain’t headed home

Chorus:

But you can come back early in the morning,
Get what you need fresh from the garden,
A little less ripe if that’s how you like it,
If you ain’t tried it you better not knock it,
If you didn’t go to church the Sunday before,
You can hear all about it and a little bit more,
About what it takes to make a man a man,
Down at Henry Cartwright’s back home, home grown, prayer and produce stand

Oh, you can come back early in the morning,
Get what you need fresh from the garden,
A little less ripe if that’s how you like it,
If you ain’t tried it you better not knock it,
If you didn’t go to church the Sunday before,
You can hear all about it and a little bit more,
About what it takes to make a man a man,
Down at Henry Cartwright’s back home, home grown, prayer and produce stand

Tag:

We got potatoes, vine ripe tomatoes,
big yellow squash, and oh my gosh,
If you need revival, he’ll read the Bible,
And mend your life to mind the Lord

Verse 1 (repeat first two lines):

He’s got an I love Jesus fish stuck on his bumper,
With a rebel flag rippin’ like a razor in the wind
