We had fun in our old stomping grounds
But it was now time to go.
As always there were last minute things
To share before we parted.
Gayle had gardened and took me on a
Nice tour of her handiwork.
We made Gayle some orange, ginger beef
Before we headed for home.
We drove flatlands of Mississippi --
The same in Alabama.
We’re looking forward to the forests
As we head for Tennessee.
Mamie and her garden are waiting
As are our two faithful pets.
Appalachian springtime beckons us;
Today we’ll make it home.
