Outside the Nashville city limits A friend and I did drive, On a day in early winter I was glad to be alive. We went to see some friends of his Who lived upon a farm. Strange and gentle country folk Who would wish nobody harm. Fresh-cut sixty acres, Eight cows in the barn. But the thing that I remember On that cold day in December Was that my eyes they did brim over As we talked. In the slowest drawl I had ever heard The man said "Come with me If y'all wanna see the prettiest place In all of Tennesee." He poured us each a glass of wine And a-walking we did go, Along fallen leaves and crackling ice Where a tiny brook did flow. He knew every inch of the land And Lord he loved it so. But the thing that I remember On that cold day in December Was that my eyes were brimming over As we walked. He set my down upon a stone Beside a running spring. He talked in a voice so soft and clear Like the waters I heard sing.
