DEAR HEARTS AND GENTLE PEOPLE

I love those dear hearts and gentle people Who live in my home town Because those dear hearts and gentle people Will never ever let you down They read the good book from Fri' till Monday That's how the weekend goes I've got a dream house I'll build there one day With picket fence and ramblin' rose I feel so welcome each time that I return That my happy heart keeps laughin' like a clown I love the dear hearts and gentle people Who live and love in my home town There's a place I'd like to go and it's Batten, Idaho Where your friendly neighbors smile and say "Hello" It's a pleasure and a treat to meander down the street That's why I want the whole wide world to know I love those dear hearts and gentle people Who live in my home town Because those dear hearts and gentle people Will never ever let you down They read the good book from Fri' till Monday That's how the weekend goes I've got a dream house I'll build there one day With picket fence and ramblin' rose I feel so welcome each time that I return That my happy heart keeps laughin' like a clown I love the dear hearts and gentle people Who live and love in my home town Home, home sweet home Home, home sweet home
