Well, when I woke up this mornin'
I was feelin' alright
So I went to the window
and the sun was shinin' bright

"Oh, what a beautiful day", I said
"Oh, how I wish I could stay
But I'll be back when the moon is high
for a slice of Miss Linny's pie"

Ya know I work all day
in the woods far away
Yeah I'll rick another load
so's to earn my pay

"Oh, what a beautiful day
Oh, I'll soon be on my way
The clouds cast a shadow on a copper sky
that looks like Miss Linny's pie"

Well, the smoke from the chimney
is like a fine cigar
Yeah an' maybe just a sip
from the old fruit jar

"Oh, it's been such a beautiful day
ya know they always end that way
with the fire reflectin' in my sweethearts eyes
and a slice of Miss Linny's pie"

Well it's off to the preacher
on the very next day
Yeah, we'll be ridin' on a wagon
chock full of hay

"Oh, what a beautiful day
ya know together we will stay
in our cabin in the woods with the chimney so high
and a slice of Miss Linny's pie

Now we've three little young'uns
runnin' off to school
yeah, to learn the three 'R's
and the golden rule

"Oh what a beautiful day
ya know they always start that way
with the taters hilled up and the corn growin' high
and a slice of Miss Linny's pie"




Loving Linny Jean is poetry.

Ahhh . . . Thank you, Ari, for this slice of the American Dream. A different style of writing for you, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Down to earth poetry!

There's an uncanny mix of cultures here. But this one certainly did not leave me feeling taters.

Miss Linny's pie must be pretty tasty! Very cutsie!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.
