"Everything's Okay" lyrics

Everything's Okay

I went to the country
Just the other day
To see my Uncle Bill
And sorta pass the time away
I asked him how he'd been
Since last I'd passed his way
And he rubbed his chin
Here's what he had to say

"My wife's been sick
The youngins, too
And I'm durn near
Down with the flu
The cow's gone dry
And them hens won't lay
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The hogs took the cholera
And they've all done died
The bees got mad
And they left the hive
The weevils got the corn
And the rain rotted the hay
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The porch rotted down
That's more expense
The durned old mule
He tore down the fence
The mortgage is due
And I can't pay
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The cow broke in the field
And eat up the beans
The durn rabbits
They got the turnip greens
And my Ma-in-law
Just moved in to stay
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

My land's so poor
So hard and "yeller"
You have to set on a sack of fetilizer
To raise an "umbreller"
And it rains out here
Nearly every day
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The well's gone dry
And I have to tote the water
Up from the spring
About a mile and a quarter
My helper, he quit
For the lack of pay
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The house it leaks
It needs a new top
When it rains
It wets everything we got
The chimney fell down
Just yesterday
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The corn meals gone
And the meat's run out
Got nothing to kill
To put in the smokehouse
The preacher's coming Sunday
To spend the day
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

The canned stuff's spoiled
Else the jar's got broke
And all we got left
Is one old Billy goat
We're gonna have a new baby
About the first of May
But we're still a-living
So everything's okay

My crop it rotted
In the ground
I asked for another loan
But the banker turned me down
But we're still a-living
And we're praying for better days
So after all
Everything's in purty good shape"
