You can have your buildings and your arithmetic
I don't need no crowded streets or city slicker tricks
I just need to be some place where I can move around
Look down at my toes and I can still see the ground
Give me that country side of life
Where I can stretch out right
Give me the country side
(Give me the country side)
Give me that country side of life
Where I don't get uptight
Give me the country side
Goin' down to the fishing pond where I can throw the line
It don't' matter what fish I catch I only came to rest my mind
The only fish you'll get down town ain't caught with a hook and sinker
Put on your brakes, beep beep, honk your horn look out now turn on your blinker
