Coombs Country Roads

(Sung to  tune of John Denver’s song “Country Roads”)



Almost heaven, old Coombs Country,

Port Alberni Highway—

French Creek winding through it.

Life is old there, kind of like the trees,

Younger than the mountains,

Active as the breeze.


Country roads, take me home

To the place I belong

Old Coombs country, Alberni Highway

Take me home country roads.


 All my memories gather round me

French Creek Elementary- Coombs’ Old Country Market

Green or frosty, painted on the sky

Hallowe’en and the Bunny Hop,

Tear drop in my eye.

I hear her voice in the morning how she calls me

The radio reminds me of my home far away

Driving down the road, I get the feeling

I should have been home yesterday, yesterday----
