Buffy Sainte-Marie – I'm Gonna Be A Country Girl Again lyrics

The rain's falling lightly
On the buildings and the cars
I've said goodbye to city friends
Department stores and bars

The lights of town are at my back
My heart is full of stars
And I'm gonna be a country girl again

Oh, yes, I'm gonna be
A country girl again
With an old brown dog
And a big front porch
And rabbits in the pen
I tell you, all the lights on Broadway
Don't amount to an acre of green
And I'm gonna be a country girl again

I spent some time in study, oh
I've taken my degrees
And memorized my formulae
My A's and B's and C's

But what I know came long ago
And not from such as these
And I'm gonna be a country girl again

[Repeat chorus]

I've wandered in the hearts of men
Looking for the sign
That here I might learn happiness
I might learn peace of mind

The one who taught my lesson
Was the soft winds through the pines
And I'm gonna be a country girl again

[Repeat chorus 2x]
