Lyrics

SWEET COUNTRY GIRL

SHE WAITS THERE EVERY EVENIN' SO SHE DOESN'T MISS HIS CALL, SHE FIGURES HE'S BEEN BUSY, WHAT WITH HIS NEW JOB AND ALL.
HE PROMISED HE WOULD CALL HER WHEN HE GOT SETTLED DOWN, BUT THE CITY IS A BUSY PLACE, NOT AT ALL LIKE THEIR SMALL TOWN.

HIS HEAD WAS FULL OF WONDER AS HE TOOK IN ALL THE SIGHTS, AND HE HAD NO TIME TO THINK OF HER, ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.

CHORUS: THE FLASHIN' NEON DREW HIM IN LIKE A MOTH INTO A FLAME, AND THE WOMEN THAT HE MET THERE, THEY WERE ANYTHING BUT TAME.
LIKE A CHILD IN A CANDY STORE, HIS HEAD WAS IN A WHIRL, AND THE LAST THING HE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WAS HIS SWEET COUNTRY GIRL.

THE NEW GIRL THAT HE FAVORED, SHE HAD EYES OF BABY BLUE. SHE HAD EVERYTHING HE WANTED BUT SHE HAD A HUSBAND TOO.
OTHERS TRIED TO WARN HIM, HE DIDN'T PAY THEM ANY MIND. THE BOY HAD FALLEN BADLY AND YOU KNOW THAT LOVE IS BLIND.

ONE NIGHT AS HE DANCED WITH HER, THE OTHER COUPLES LEFT THE FLOOR, AND HE FELT HIS LOVER SHAKIN' AS SHE LOOKED OVER AT THE DOOR.
HER HUSBAND BROKEN HEARTED, TEARS RUNNIN DOWN HIS FACE; AND SOON THERE WAS JUST THREE OF THEM LEFT THERE IN THE PLACE.

THE FLASHIN' NEON DREW HIM IN LIKE A MOTH INTO A FLAME, BUT AS HE FACED THAT TEARFUL HUSBAND, HIS HEART WAS FULL OF SHAME.
HE STARED AT THAT SILVER PISTOL WITH THE HANDLES OF WHITE PEARL, AND THE LAST THING HE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WAS HIS SWEET COUNTRY GIRL. THE LAST THING HE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WAS HIS SWEET COUNTRY GIRL.
