Trisha Yearwood – Mr. Radio lyrics

Oh, what a sunny day
When they carried the radio home
Bringing him in off the truck
And the dogs wouldn't leave us alone
Mr. Radio, you come down here to keep us company

We listen in a room
Through the miles and miles of night
Deep in the heart of the Bible belt
In the golden radio light
Mr. Radio, you come down here to keep us company

And it's hard days out in the field
The crows in the high tree top
If a man's away from his home all day
His chickens might fall to the fox
Mr. Radio, what can you do about that?
Uh huh

And you can take me down to a river town
Where the citizens dance till dawn
They dance so close it's a sin almost
The way they carry on
Mr. Radio, I never dreamed you could

And it's miles at the careless touch
Of a tired hand in time
When evening fell I heard a strange sell
Dreams that were never mine
Mr. Radio, you come down here to keep us company
You come down here to keep us company

    Mr. Radio was the machine that came into the rural landscape of america before the media age. The isolation of that time is difficult for the smart phone social network generations to conceive, but there was a time before all this. It was quiet, and in some ways lonely. Visitors were more welcomed then because human companionship was rarer. Through invisible magic of radio waves the nation and the world were connected. The red lights atop tall transmission towers were like stars near the earth and brought us into the web of a new reality.
