Porches Love Country Music Songs

Country music songs and lyrics often include references to front porches and front porch swings. From getting your first kiss to holding hands on the swing, country music captures the true essence of what a front porch means in the lives of many.



country music songs about porches



Mary and I have collected several songs we believe you will enjoy. Some are well known like Garth Brooks' "Somewhere Other Than the Night" and Elton John's "Porch Swing In Tupelo". Others may not be as well recognized but capture the love of porches just as well.

Elton John - "Porch Swing in Tupelo"
Writers: Elton John and Bernie Taupin :: Universal Music Publishing Group

The song is about Elvis Presley. It was inspired when Bernie Taupin (co-writer) sat on Elvis' porch swing at his birthplace home.

The lyrics begin with: "There's a porch swing in Tupelo in the shade of the south..."







Dolly Parton - "Sittin` on the Front Porch Swing"
Lyrics by: Buddy Sheffield, 1997

A great Dolly Parton song about years gone by while sittin' on the front porch swing:

"When our cares, which were already few Were soon forgotten, Just sittin' on the front porch swing"







Lonestar "My Front Porch Looking In"
Lyrics by: Richie McDonald, Frank J. Myers and Don Pfrimmer

This song debuted in March 2003 from their album "From There to Here: Greatest Hits". In the song the front porch is the stage from which he views his family with great love and realizes how beautiful they are to him.

"Nothing takes my breath away Like my front porch looking in"









Kenny Rogers "In My Old Age"
Lyrics by: Chaz Bosarge

Mary and I really enjoy this song which is from Kenny Roger's album - "Love Is Strange". The song captures the true essence of lasting love.

"They were sittin' on a front porch swing Like two young lovers"









Pam Tillis "Maybe It Was Memphis"
Written by: Michael Anderson

The main character in the song is recalling a former lover that she encountered in Memphis, Tennessee from her front porch swing. The song was nominated for Country Music Association's Song of the Year in 1992.

"Think about you on your mama's front porch swing Talking that way, so soft to me"









Tracy Lawrence "If the World Had a Front Porch"
Written by: Tracy Lawrence, Paul Nelson, and Kenny Beard

Great song reminiscent about what it was like years ago and memories of spending time on the front porch.

"Treatin' your neighbor like he's your next of kin Wouldn't be gone with the wind If the world had a front porch like we did back then"

















Cjaye Lerose "The Porch"
Composer: Cjaye Lerose

A fun song inspired by Cjaye being locked out of her house and on the porch in her underwear she wrote this song about a fella who isn't spending enough time with her and she's putting him on the porch!

"Yah, in your dreams; You can have those things; You've been begging me for; 'Cause I'm locking you out tonight; You're sleeping on the porch"
