My Driveway’s A Country Road

I decided to compose some alternate lyrics to John Denver’s “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” as I walked down my driveway yesterday to put letters in the mailbox.

(Please send any paving quotes or recommendations to me via comments.  Thanks.)

My Driveway’s A Country Road

Well, you can’t live in a house, and lots of money lack
‘Cause there’s always something breakin’ or-a goin’ off the track
When you look out my front window, not much pavement – mostly crack!
My driveway’s a country road.

Well, walkin’ to my mailbox is like walkin’ on a farm
The driveway’s bumps and holes will surely do you lots of harm
I won’t try to convince you that it’s full of rustic charm
My driveway’s a country road.

Well, my daddy played the fiddle but he didn’t have my house
If he ever saw my driveway, he most certainly would grouse,
“It’s shameful when your asphalt is much worse than the Town’s!”
My driveway’s a country road.

Well, if you came upon my driveway in a fancy limousine
It’d prob’ly crack in half and then go on and just careen
Into one of two huge boulders that are really, just plain mean!
My driveway’s a country road.

    Very funny. Maybe you should go into song writing instead of comedy. Hehe. I was just thinking about what an eyesore that Rapoza driveway was the other day while parked waiting for the bus. LOL!

    Dave and I are still laughing over this, but don’t know which was funnier: Joanna’s song lyrics, Kelly’s post or the driveway picture! Thanks for the chuckle!
