The Cabin That Papaw Built

Updated: May 10, 2022

...He alone built this humble place...

The cabin that Papaw built

Sits on the side of a hill

Made with Pine and Poplar

And cut with his own saw mill

Day after day he worked with his hands

To clear a place in the wood

And to build this little ol' cabin

For his grandson's childhood

With his hammer and his nails

And a good bit of determination

He alone built this humble place

And meant it for a little boys imagination

In North Carolina, down a gravel road

This cabin sits among the trees

It has a little bed in a little room

With a porch to see the mountains

This ol' cabin is a childhood joy

For the little offspring for whom it was built

But, one day even they will know it as,

The cabin that Papaw built
