. . . “To bean or not to bean – that is the question”
that faces young Jack in the clever retelling of the Jack &
the Beanstalk story. In this version, Jack’s Mama is a hillbilly
in the great Smoky Mountains, the Giant is three-headed and lives
in a cabin in a nearby ‘holler,’ and the Goose that
lays Golden Eggs just wants to be a regular chicken.

1. "Hey, Thank You Momma"
But lately I find, that I watch the rainbows,
I know in my heart I can’t stay.
It’s certainly so, that I’ve been a messin’,
Around with a magical way.
It’s certainly true, that I’ve been addressin’
The question of runnin’ away.
But all I want to say is hey, thank you Momma,
For lettin’ that stork on your porch.
And all I want to say is hey thank you Momma,
For lettin’ this Jack be your boy.
Strings, like a band of gold,
Feeling warm or cold,
To the touch.
Strings wound around the heart,
Keep pulling apart,
What I love so much.
