Just Plain Old Folks (Kevin Becker (C) 1985) CHO: We ain't city, we ain't pretty Bothered nor provoked We're all for one and we sing for fun We're just plain old folks 1. And we'll set for hours telling stories That only a fool would believe How we'll travel 'round the world From a town we'll never leave And how some day we'll all be rich When progress steals our farms Whenever wealthy people frown Just say you meant no harm 2. Grab the banjo, get the guitar Have a good old time Hold the hand of the lady or man Who makes you feel so fine And sing a song of long ago Or make one up brand new Join the chorus, SINGOUT! loud Express your point of view 3. Night is fading, morning's breaking Our songs and stories told Sleepy hours few and chores to do As the new day now unfolds But I'm sure glad we spent this time To laugh and sing our songs So next time bring that mandolin And join our sing-along BL
