Country Comfort by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. 
An old favourite of mine from early 70s album Tumbleweed Connection.

Verse 1:
	 A                          D
Soon the pines will be falling everywhere 
         Bm                   G            E
Village children fight each other for a share 
	 A                          D
And the 6:09 goes roaring past the creek 
       Bm                  D              A
Deacon Lee prepares his sermon for next week 

Verse 2:
     A                               D
I saw grandma yesterday down at the store 
           Bm                G            E
Well she's really going fine for eighty four 
         A                                 D
Well she asked me if sometime I'd fix her barn 
         Bm               D                A
Poor old girl she needs a hand to run the farm 

           D               E             A
And it's good old country comfort in my bones 
            D              E              A
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known 
         D             E             A   G   F#m
Just an old-fashioned feeling fully-growwwwwn
        Bm            D                  A
Country comfort's in a truck that's going home 

Verse 3:
            A                      D
Down at the well they've got a new machine 
     Bm                       G           E
The foreman says it cuts man-power by fifteen 
                    A                              D
Yeah but that ain't natural well so old Clay would say 
               Bm              D               A
You see he's a horse-drawn man until his dying day 


Verse 4
Now the old fat goose is flying across the sticks
The hedgehog?s done in clay between the bricks
And the rocking chair?s are creaking on the porch
Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch
