Raccoons and Foxes

Raccoons and Foxes

I live in my mother’s house
Up the hill from Thompson’s Creek
When daddy died and sister left
It was hard for momma and me

Well momma died last April
Her whole life is in boxes
Now I just sit on the back porch
Waiting for raccoons and foxes

Chorus:
Mom and Dad are up on Chatham Hill
Sister is somewhere in Tennessee
If you see movement in the darkness
It’s just the raccoons, the foxes and me

I put the feed out at dusk
Just like momma used to do
Then I sit glued to this old chair
Everything changes if you move

There’s still wildlife in the yard
Foxes, possums and raccoons
The raccoons come far too early
The foxes leave too soon

Chorus:
Mom and Dad are up on Chatham Hill
Sister is somewhere in Tennessee
If you see movement in the darkness
It’s just the raccoons, the foxes and me

Bridge:
Bandits rob you blind
Pretty women break your heart
Loved ones leave you crying
In a chair on a porch in the dark

Chorus:
Mom and Dad are up on Chatham Hill
Sister is somewhere in Tennessee
If you see movement in the darkness
It’s just the raccoons, the foxes and me
