Warm and Neighborly Woman

We met at the Farmer’s Market, she was sellin’ sweet corn by the pound
And I was quite surprised by her sincere smile I accidentally found
Her lips were like apples from trees I’d pick from when I was young
I just could not believe my eyes, she was a love song yet to be sung

She was a warm and neighborly woman who lived outside of my town
I guess she hadn’t found a cowboy who was willing to settle down
And I don’t know how I found the courage to ask her out on a date
She said she’d love to as long as we weren’t out too late

So after the Farmer’s Market closed down we went to a local bar
She had on jeans and a gingham blouse & looked like a Country star
Her eyes were kind as she looked at me, she was funny and wise
As she shared a little about her lifestyle and her problems with guys

She was a warm and neighborly woman who didn’t want to be alone
I guess nobody found in her what I did, yet she was not unknown
I asked her if I could get her number and she wrote it on my hand
And we talked for an hour as we listened to a lively Bluegrass band

I called her the next mornin’ she just got in from feedin’ her hogs
She told me to call her later, she was just about to bathe her dogs
So I waited a couple hours and she said yes to going out that night
She let me know she was famished and would love to go have a bite

She was a warm and neighborly woman but she also had a wild side
Once she got to drinkin’ and dancin’ man she was like a carnival ride
I asked her if she’d consider bein’ my girlfriend and she said, “Okay!”
And we’ve been together ever since that Summer Farmer’s Market day

Oh, we’ve been together ever since that Summer Farmer’s Market day.
