An Old Log Cabin for Sale (Words and music: Payte) While strolling along in the country Reviewing the scenes new and old I found an old-fashioned log cabin So beautiful there to behold; A stranger was standing in silence His eyes firmly fixed on the door My heart ached (in pity) or (and pitied) to see him For these were the words that it bore. Refrain: And the sign read "An old cabin for sale An old oaken bucket and well" F'he returns, just keep a log on the fire And a light burning bright in the dell; Many years an old couple did patiently look: ....2nd refrain: (so patiently looked) For their boy whose last promise did fail Now the old rockin' chair will be rocking no more There's an old log cabin for sale. A welcome I read on the floor mat An old braided rug by the door The hands of an angel had made it With many a prayer prayed before. In an old rockin' chair, long she waited For one glimpse of him how she yearned And now he was standing in silence Too late, yes, too late he'd returned. Refrain: TAG: There's ...no ...place ...like ...home. Recorded by Porter Wagoner GG oct97
