Not sure why but this is the first song that popped in my head. It's an old country song and I remember hearing it as a child.

~Y'all Come~

When you live in the country everybody's your neighbor

On this one thing you can rely

They'll all come to see you and they'll never ever leave you

Y'all come to see us by and by

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us when you can

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us now and then

Now Grandma's a-wishing you'd come out to the kitchen

And help do the dishes right away

Then they all start a-leaving, and though she's a-grieving

You can still hear grandma say

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us when you can

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us now and then

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us when you can

Y'all come (y'all come), y'all come (y'all come)

Oh, you all come to see us now and then.

Gosh, this song was the epitome of boondocks and down-to-earth hospitality. The original female singer (can't remember her name) had the countryiest voice I've ever heard. It was one happy song.

Sister - The Nixons

I forgot about this band, I remember this song coming out in the mid 90's, I always thought of them as a sort of Pearl Jam wannabee, but still a pretty decent band that completely faded into oblivion.
