Best Blueberry Patch Around

I’m seated on the back deck

lawyer’s letter in my hand

Waves slap inside the crab pools

gulls coast above the sand

It’s a good day to be living

got sunshine on my face

Bees dance about the boxwood

a heavenly kinda place


Jill comes through the beach grass

a banjo on her arm

She has blueberry muffins

and home brew from the farm

I say, cuz Jill, how are you?

she says, not bad and you?

I say, worse for the lawyers

if they start to turn the screw

When I pray, I say Amen

Hope such a day comes back again

Don’t have plenty, but I’m not broke

Rather drown than go up'n smoke


Lobster shells and bareback ponies

Mean showed up and blew right through me

At hot day’s end I wrote this song

Carved in sand to right all wrong


Blueberries come from Nova Scotia

Cousin Jill I’m gonna tell ya

If that developer comes near me

Fetch the ponies and set them free


They’ve another thing coming

if they think I’ll sell this land

My granddaddy before me

built the house and farm by hand


City lawyers can make their threats

offer condos all round town

I raised my family here

so I won’t be backing down


I don’t care about golfers

or the nearby lobster pound

This is a horse and pony farm

best blueberry patch around

When I pray, I say Amen

Hope such a day comes back again

Don’t have plenty, but I’m not broke

Rather drown than go up'n smoke


Lobster shells and bareback ponies

Mean showed up and blew right through me

At hot day’s end I wrote this song

Carved in sand to right all wrong

Blueberries come from Nova Scotia

Cousin Jill I’m gonna tell ya

If that developer comes near me

Fetch the ponies and set them free

No cuz

I won’t lay low

those hard heads just won’t let go

Yeah cuz

I’ll hold my ground

best blueberry patch for miles around
