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

What!?!  Are you my guardian angel?  I’m so grateful you found me!  You’re amazing.  Truly.  THANK YOU! You’ll get all of the above +....I would love to take one of your personal stories or a tale from your family history and immortalize it in a song just for you!  Or, if you'd rather, maybe Joe and I can come play a show at your house? Or my dad and I could come play and sing for you and your friends?  Or perhaps you just want us to come over and cook you dinner and hang out?  Or maybe you want an insider tour of Nashville?  Or maybe you've got something else in mind?!  Let's talk about it and figure it out.  I can't believe you're supporting me at this level.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much.
