It's Good to Have You Here

Doctor and Sally and you on the grass

The sun peering through the clouds on the pass

Here creek greets the river, Hellos all around

It's good to have you here, here in my town.

It's a beautiful thing, a gal and her dogs

A wood stove that sings chock full of logs

A blanket as warm as the night is long

It's good to have you here, here in my song.

When I turn on the news, things don't look right

It brings on the blues, fears to night

A grown-up child curled under the bed

Hopes in the morning he will not be dead.

I am pleased to meet you and amble this lane

With the rocks and the flowers, the wind and the rain

In this crazy crazed world, so overstuffed with strife

It's good to have you here, here in my life.

It's good to have you here, here in my life.... (ride out)
