Lyrics

BORN IN THE COUNTRY
Words & Music by David Smalley

Born in the country
Nearest town was miles away
I can hear my mama tellin' me
Son , you're leavin' here someday
I can see my daddy workin'
Choppin' wood at break of day
I remember sometimes prayin'
That I'd be a man like him someday

Thumb out on the highway
Didn't know where I was bound
Just a young boy with some crazy dreams
Most of them I've never found
Yeah, they’ve carried me a million miles around
The world and back again
I've watched the stars light up the desert
And shivered to those cold Wyoming winds

Yes, and I was born in the country
Why I left I just don't know
Soon as I get myself together
Back tot he country's where I'll go

I've never felt any further from home
Than this truck stop on I-17
I've heard them say Boy you can't go back home
But I've always followed my dreams

Yes and I was born in the country
Where the pine trees meet the snow
Where a man can trust his neighbors
Settle down and watch his children grow
