Strawberry Farms Lyrics

by Tom T. Hall

Summer comes laughing to strawberry farms
Have you ever been there, where the wind never blows
Summer comes early to strawberry farms
Oh the sun always shines but an orphan cant go

My mother is dead, she doesnt care where I go
My father left a long, long time ago
I had me a frog, he never whined or cried
I kept him in my pocket and he died

Summer comes laughing to strawberry farms
Have you ever been there, where the wind never blows
Summer comes early to strawberry farms
Oh the sun always shines but an orphan cant go

Bobby had a brother, he got killed in the war
I asked him but he didnt know what for
My mother was pretty, she had long black hair
Once, she promised me a teddy bear

Summer comes laughing to strawberry farms
Have you ever been there, where the wind never blows
Summer comes early to strawberry farms
Oh the sun always shines and things dont die
