Ellsworth

Grandma burned the biscuits Nearly took the house down with it Now she's in assisted livin' We all knew that day would come We knew she was too gone to drive The day she parked on I-65 Found her on the shoulder cryin' She didn't know where she was It's like her mind just quit Oh, but bring up grandpa It's like someone flipped a switch A front porch light and blue Desoto Couple of straws in a Coca-Cola You could see it all goin' down A handsome boy in army green A tear on his face, down on a knee Shaky voice, a diamond ring She'll put you in that town Tomorrow she won't remember what she did today But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948 She takes out his medals A cigar box of letters Sits and scatters pictures Black and whites of days gone by We started losin' her when she lost him But to hear her carry on You'd swear she's seventeen again Football games and leaves are cracklin' Walking her home in his letter jacket You could see it all goin' down A perfect night on a front porch glider Sayin' goodnight for the next three hours Her tired eyes grow wide and bright When she talks about that town Tomorrow she won't remember what she did today But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948 While the world is fading all around her Sharin' a sundae at the counter He's goin' on and on about her Bet she's right there right now Tomorrow she won't remember what she did today But just ask her about Ellsworth, Kansas 1948
