"Where The Rooster Crows"
(Spooner Oldham / Chuck Prophet / Dan Stuart)

When I was just a little boy, down on the farm
I'd sneak a peek at the Sears catalogue, out behind the barn
Wishbook dreaming, hoping and scheming
Thinking about that picture show
It always takes me back, to where the rooster crows

Then one day there was fuzz on my face
I knew just what to do
I bought an old truck got dressed up, hit me a dance or two
I was looking for women, my head was a spinning

Searchin' high and low
I stayed up all night, I heard the rooster crow
Now you take it easy honey
And I'll take it slow
We'll sneak out back by the chicken shack
We'll make love while the rooster crows

My daddy sat me down one day, just as I was fixin' to leave
He said, "Son I know it's too late to tell you about the birds and the bees
Just remember your good times in the country
Your mama's butter beans on the stove
You'll be alright as long as you can remember where the rooster crows"
