Story

east kildonan april 1972

a beautiful spring morning

after a very long

and terribly cold winter

 

Lyrics

old dirt road and apple trees

tossed about in the april breeze

worn out wooden fencepost falling

prairie grass to my knees

the sap is now surging

the buds will be bursting

the sun has returned and is kind

 

come to our home just to visit awhile

i’d like to see you all smile

might even bake up some fresh bread for you

it’s good even when it don’t rise

our kitchen’s so warm

and there’s pictures on the walls

the birds will be coming home soon
