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----
