Backporch Flowers

 

Becky's blessed with a special heart

Ev'rybody in the neighborhood knows

A soft touch around the world from the start

Keeps my backporch flowers growin'

 

Becky's blessed with a special heart

A whisper listenin' through the walls

A gentle word in a room where you are

Keeps my backporch flowers growin'

 

            Good preachin' on the radio

            She's reachin' for a finer sound

            Old apron strings on sunday mornin's

            Turns me away from town

 

Becky's blessed with a special heart

Fingernails plain cut and dried

Hair comin' into silver light

Keeps my backporch flowers growin'

 

            Good preachin' on the radio

            She's reachin' for a finer sound

            Old apron strings on sunday mornin's

            Turns me away from town

 

Becky's blessed with a special heart

Ev'rybody in the neighborhood knows
