Country sounds so pure and clean,

from hearts of the people to share,

A rhythm and melody of down home played,

heard on the wind, and so rare.




As a Guitar, mandolin, and banjo joins,

in happy strings and mellow sounds,

A harmonica backs them in their refrain,

while joys of the tune abounds.




A voice reflected in the country ways,

and so shared by a people of the plow,

A rich earth and a hard working of character,

yields all a good life does allow.




Sung on the wings of a lonesome dove,

while a red hawk sings its notes by day's light,

A crow calls across the open fields,

as an owl hoots approvingly, in the night.




Country home, with its country ways,

of a people of good health and natures, strong,

The life of a country man and his family,

no finer place and none happier, to belong.




Songs from the earth and on a gentle breeze,

form a fine symphony, all flows, to blend,

Messages from the hearts and souls to impart,

as beloved lyrics, these all to send.




They echo in the darkness, these fine tunes to fly,

and too, played, by a moon over head,

Voices tell of hardships and struggles, seen by all,

as on the cooling currents, each to spread.




Down through the hollows, all across the countryside,

stories told of times to be had,

The good ones and down times of a country folk,

songs of happiness, and some, so sad.




The treasures of the people, none so special,

expressed in their own country ways,

Sung and played in down to earth chords,

and a chorus of the simple life, it displays.




It tells of what life has to offer when you try,

and what we all get, when we're true,

A natural story, of all the glory, set in a music,

clean and fine, as the morning mountain dew.

      Thanks to all for your great response. Country music may be found at the roots of many other forms of music in this country.

      Thanks teaches12345, Country music is a thing that has to be a part of a person's life to appreciate it more, yet other forms of music have evolved from it, such as rock, and others. Soul music and Blues, came from the roots of the country and although may seem worlds apart, all has had a kinship over the years, Music is a reflection of the people who share it and their lives. Cultures influence music and music certainly has been shown to influence culture. (As in our modern era of rock,rap,etc.).

      Country roads take me home, and this is where I want to stay,

      My thoughts run back to golden days, the happy times of yesterday.

      Thanks Bill, I always have had a soft spot in my heart for country music, and I was raised in the country and am glad that I was. Rock and roll had its roots in country, just ask Elvis.

      It's hard to believe that this kid who was raised on rock n roll would end up loving country, but here I am. You captured the genre beautifully!

      You're very welcome! I have lived a country life for 49 years and I would have no other. I love the simplicity and peacefulness. I'm also a lover of country music, old and new. So reading your hub was almost like reading about my life!
