COOT CORNER

There's a place where herons, redwings, and ospreys
Just want to know if you'll come out and play.
But if you've got a money-making job of work to do,
This lowly piece of marshland might not be the spot for you.

Coot Corner's just a swampy place in Will McLean's back yard.
To get there ain't so difficult,
Just close your eyes real hard.
And dream of Withlacoochee with her lily pads and coot.
Coot Corner is a state of mind . . . for folks who give a hoot.

Glossy ibis love Coot Corner. One or two,
Let me snap a glossy photo as they flew.
And when cormorants fly low along the lazy Withlacooch,
That's Coot Corner's easy-gliding little Air Force, it's the truth.

Coot Corner's just a swampy place in Will McLean's back yard.
To get there ain't so difficult,
Just close your eyes real hard.
And dream of Withlacoochee with her lily pads and coot.
Coot Corner is a state of mind . . . for folks who give a hoot.

Blue heron, won't you dip your wings so low,
To land along the shallows here to fish.
'Cause when you see me smiling so, you know
You're part of my Coot Corner Withlacoochee River wish.

Coot Corner's just a sacred kind of place.
This cypress stump's the altar I embrace.
But if Nature ever grants me a wish to share with you,
Coot Corner right at daybreak might have room enough for two.

Coot Corner's just a swampy place in Will McLean's back yard.
To get there ain't so difficult,
Just close your eyes real hard.
And dream of Withlacoochee with her lily pads and coot.
Coot Corner is a state of mind . . . for folks who give a hoot.
