There's a cabin in the country
No TVs or telephone
When I get that burnt out feeling
Down in spirits all alone
I got a sweet country girl
Who I can call my cornerstone

We used to hang out in the city
But it got too much for her to bear
She left me for the country
Found serenity out there
I sure do miss my baby
But she knows I really care

The last time I held her
We watched the sun go down nightfall
She told me that she loved me
I was feeling like a hero ten feet tall
She's my sweet country girl
In her cabin by the waterfall

She grows the best tomatoes
In a garden where her roses bloom
Down home barbecuein'
In the backyard just outside her room
I miss that country girl
I just got to go and see her soon

I know I should've listened
When my heart was tellin' me to stay
But I was blind and foolish
Never could find the words to say
I'm goin' back now to find her
My country girl will light my way
