Lyrics: 

If This Planet Had A Veranda (Larry W Jones 09/28/2019) (song #7622)

That veranda was where my Mama hummed as she knitted
That veranda was where my Daddy wore clothes she fitted
It was where we ate apple pie, listened to the wind sigh
Where we played guitar and fiddle and sang to heaven high

That veranda saw summer nights when we gazed at the stars
That veranda saw lightning bugs kids put in Mason jars
It was where I fell in love and realized my first kiss
It was where I realized that life is a precious gift

If this planet had a veranda like we had back home
Back to it we’d all meander from where we all had roamed
If this planet had a veranda as we had back then
We would all come together and not scattered to the wind

(Instrumental)

Watermelon and home made ice cream we all served and shared
We played Fish and Battle and other card games fair and square
That veranda always had a small window light left on
Mama and Daddy knew sons and daughters would come back home

If this planet had a veranda like we had back home
Back to it we’d all meander from where we all had roamed
If this planet had a veranda as we had back then
We would all come together and not scattered to the wind

If this planet had a veranda like we had back home
We would all come together and not scattered to the wind
