Song Description

DREAMS OF HOME FOREVER LINGER AND NOTHING IN THE WORLD CAN EVER REPLACE THAT.

Story Behind the Song

REMEMBERING WHERE YOU CAME FROM, NOT WHERE YOU'RE GOING!

Lyrics

COUNTRY STATE OF MIND

(1)

I WAS JUST A FRECKLED-FACED BOY OF TEN
WITH AN OLD CANE POLE AND A STRINGER OF BREAM
IT WAS JUST DADDY'S LITTLE MAN AND HIM
AGAINST THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
WHEN HIS HARD DAY'S WORK AT THE PLANT WAS THROUGH
HE ALWAYS FOUND TIME JUST TO TOSS A FEW
THE SMELL OF MAMA'S FRIED CHICKEN WAS OUR CUE
AND HE'D RACE ME ALL THE WAY.

CHORUS

WHAT I'D GIVE IF ONLY SOMEHOW
I COULD JUST GO BACK IN TIME
AND WALK THAT OLD DIRT ROAD AND
FEEL THE WIND RUSH THROUGH THE PINES
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME THERE
THAT I LEFT BEHIND
BUT, EVERY NOW AND THEN I STILL GO BACK AND I FIND
MY COUNTRY STATE OF MIND.

(2)

WE'D GATHER AFTER SUPPER MOST SATURDAY NIGHTS
PICKIN' AND A'SINGIN' 'NEATH THE FRONT PORCH LIGHT
DADDY'D DO ELVIS TO MAMA'S DELIGHT
THEN WE'D ALL SING AMAZING GRACE
NOW THE YEARS HAVE FLOWN BY AND I'M FULL GROWN
I'VE GOT A BEAUTIFUL WIFE AND A BOY OF MY OWN
BIG CITY LIVIN' WILL NEVER BE HOME
I HEAR THE COUNTRY CALLIN' ME

CHORUS

WHAT I'D GIVE IF ONLY SOMEHOW
I COULD JUST GO BACK IN TIME
AND RUN THAT SIDEWALK PONY
DOWN AT WOOLWORTH'S FIVE AND DIME
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE A PART OF ME THERE
THAT I LEFT BEHIND
BUT, EVERY NOW AND THEN I STILL GO BACK AND I FIND
MY COUNTRY STATE OF MIND.
