What Would They Say?

What would they say
If we up and ran away
From the roaring crowds
And the worn out city faces
Would they carry on and on
When they found out we were gone
Or would they let us go
Would they tag along
Or would they know to

Leave us alone
We’d live in the country
Leave us alone
We’d make it just fine
Happy in a one room shack
And we’d not look back
Now would we

What would they do
If they found out we were through
With all the little lies
And the downtown aggravations
That we’d traded them away
For a quiet country day
That we had hoped to share
Would they try to find out
Where we were or

Leave us alone
We’d live in the country
Leave us alone
We’d make it just fine
Happy in a one room shack
And we’d not look back
Now would we

What would they say
If we up and ran away
Ran away

  1. What would they say indeed? Nice poem

    Shirley Anne x

  2. Very beautiful, thanks for sharing.

  3. Beautiful and very thought provoking. πŸ™‚
    Stay strong and be blessed!

  4. You’re welcome, Diana! Nice to see you again and thanks for your comment!

  5. Thanks, Shirley! This is one of my all time favorite songs.

  6. Thank you, Steph!! God bless you too!

  7. Much nicer font!

    Pretty song. My son and I just returned from a month touring Europe by car and couchsurfing. We avoided cities and the worn busy faces there. And my family lives outside a busy city — we are so happy with our choice.

    @ the warrioress:
    Do you live in the country?

  8. Just for you, Sabio, I will get rid of the comment hierarchies and see how things proceed.. πŸ˜‰

    Now as to the song, yes it is a pretty song. It’s one of those songs that stays in your mind and you find yourself humming it later on and aren’t even aware of it. And yes, Sabio, I do live in the country; I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

  9. I have nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger’s Award. You can accept it by going here.. Β Β 

  10. @ The 1 Saved by Grace

    Thanks so much, sis. I really appreciate you thinking of me. (hugging) Thanks for reading here.

  11. The warrioress,
    Cool, I hope not hierarchy works well for you. Folks to write “@” or use a person’s name when addressing someone else to keep it clear. But that is how personal notes should be written anyway.

    I love being introduced to new people by folks. I use to live in rural Japan in a thatched roof house but it was too rural. My water came in from a stream via a plastic tube. No heat, no light except my kerosine lamp. And I had to walk to the outhouse. I drove my motorcycle up from the city and had to park 1/4 mi from my house and walk up a path through the woods.

    I lived alone and so that only lasted 6 months. And no internet in those days.

    I’ve lived country for 3 years in the US and loved it – well, except the 3 restaurants were all the same. Nowhere is perfect, but country is heading in the right direction.

    Do you think Heaven will be a city or a vast National Park? πŸ™‚
    Don’t some Christians think heaven will only have 144,000 inhabitants? That wouldn’t be bad for a city. πŸ™‚

  12. @Sabio

    I think Heaven is going to be something that we cannot even begin to imagine and I too believe it will be much more inclusive than we think. I couldn’t begin to understand what’s awaiting us there.

  13. @ the warrioress,
    If there is a heaven and a god, then I agree — I can’t imagine how it could be anything but beyond our imagination. And as C.S.Lewis invites the enemy of Aslan come over to Narnia to the shock of Narnians, I imagine the same will happen. It is because of this inclusiveness that I have no worries — not that I worry, put I think our minds are all divided — atheists all have little theists inside and theists have atheists. I am more Buddhist than not, so I am a non-dualist of sorts where none of those terms really makes a lot of sense.

    Oooops, sorry, too much philosophy.
    Point: I agree with inclusiveness — I wish more were like C.S. Lewis in this regard.
