        I wish I knew

 

             Oh how I only wish I knew back then what it is I Know today.  

             I wouldn’t have taken for granite so many things the old way.

     Where the mountains and the great outdoors was our play ground.

     And playing hide and go seek so well that you couldn’t be found.

     There was no sitting in front of the television watching a video game.

     We would be outside playing until our parents hollered our name.

     Taking turns in the number six tub, washing the day’s dirt away.

     And spending time with our family, telling our Adventures of the day.

     It was a place where men worked hard digging coal in that ole mine.

     And women washed clothes in a ringer washer then hung them on a line.

     There were no rush hour or stop lights of red, yellow and green.

     No skyscrapers, billboards, or convenient stores could ever be seen.

     Just surrounded by beautiful mountains, sunrises and sunsets.

     Watching the deer and elk, a skunk or porcupine was as wild as it gets.

     Sharing whatever you had with your neighbors was the coal camp way.

      Oh how I only wish I knew back then what it is I know today.
