Back Porch Patreon Session #27: What a Wonderful Home
 
What a Wonderful Home

by: Nora Jane Struthers


If I were born into this world again

Just a babe in mother's arms

I would count myself so lucky to be held by you


If I were a bird in the trees

Hoping between the air and the leaves

I would be so blessed if I could fly and rest

in West Virginia's Tygart Valley


Oh Oo Oh Oo Oh woah

What a wonderful home

Oh Oo Oh Oo Oh woah

What a wonderful home


If I were a guitar hangin on the wall

Praying to be played

Oh what sweet release your fingers finally reach for me


If I were an acre of earth

Before someone decides what I'm worth

I'd give myself to you; we'd toil the whole year through

To see what beauty we could bring to birth


Oh Oo Oh Oo Oh woah

What a wonderful home


If I were a letter stamped and put to post

Passed form hand to bag and box and truck

Wouldn't it be grand to wind up in your hand, finally understood?


If I were some leftover thing

That no one in the world thinks that they need

I'd make my way to you for you would know the truth

You see a flower where others see a weed


Oh Oo Oh Oo Oh woah

What a wonderful home


If I were born into this world again

Just a babe in mother's arms

I would count myself so lucky to be held by you
