Gone From The Scene
© By Grady L. Duncan 
3/16/01
In the early years of my life,
Were things that are now past.
Things that were plain and simple.
Then, we thought they would last.
Mules that worked hard in the fields,
Pulling that old one row plow,
And wagons that hauled heavy loads.
Where have they all gone now ?
Then came the Willys and Packard,
The Hudson and Studebaker too.
There were others then on the scene,
But I'll name just these few.
All of these cars have come and gone,
Though they once served us well.
Now others have taken their place,
That foreigners manage to sell.
The smell of wood burning in the stove.
Eggs, bacon and biscuits are on,
Gravy, coffee and sausage too,
Never having to eat all alone.
The whole family was gathered at meals,
Not starting until all were there.
They never ever started to eat,
Before they offered a prayer.
To people down on the farm.
The list could go on and on,
'Til it was long as my arm,
Of things that were so useful then.
One other thing that I loved,
Was the singing I could hear,
That flowed throughout the land,
From the Church we held so dear.
