"HAVE YOU EVER"

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SUNRISE,

AS YOU HOLD THE ONE YOU LOVE,

OR ONCE IN A WHILE DROP TO YOUR KNEES,

AND THANK THE LORD ABOVE.

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD A CRICKET,

OR A DISTANCE COYOTE HOWEL,

HAVE YOU EVER FELT THE EVENING DEW,

OR SEEN A GRACEFUL WATERFOWL.

HAVE YOU EVER HELD A BABY SQUIRREL,

OR WATCHED A MAMA DEER,

OR SEEN A HAWK SWOOP DOWN LOW,

ON A RABBIT RUNNING IN FEAR.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A BEAVER,

GNAWING DOWN A WILLOW TREE,

OR LOOKED FROM A TOP A GRASSY HILL,

AS FAR AS THE EYE COULD SEE.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A TEN-POINT BUCK,

AS YOU PULLED YOUR BOW-STRING TIGHT,

OR FOLLOWED THE TRACKS OF AN ELK,

ON A COLD WINTER'S NIGHT,

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE SWAYING MOTION,

OF A FIELD OF BUTTERCUPS,

OR RODE ON TOP OF A LOAD OF HAY,

ON A PICKUP TRUCK.

HAVE YOU EVER HELD A FISHING POLE,

ON THE BANK OF A CREEK,

AND WATCHED YOUR CORK BOB UP AND DOWN,

AND YOU COULD HARDLY KEEP YOUR SEAT,

HAVE YOU EVER LAY ON THE GROUND,

AND LOOKED UP IN THE SKY,

AND DESCRIBED ALL KINDS OF THINGS,

IN THE CLOUDS FLOATING BY.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A COUNTRY GIRL,

YOU'D GIVE YOUR HEART TO MEET,

EVEN THOUGH YOU WANTED TO TALK,

YOU COULDN'T EVEN SPEAK.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SUNSET,

OVER A DISTANT HILL,

OR SEEN THE COLORS OF AUTUMN,

WITH IT'S EVENING CHILL.

ALL THESE THINGS CAN COME TO YOU,

IN THE COUNTRY OR BACK IN THE HILLS,

AND AT NIGHT YOU SLEEP CONTENT,

WITH THE SOUND OF THE WHIP-POOR-WILL.
