Jeannie C. Riley – Country Girl lyrics

New York is a long way from Texas
Vegas is a long way from Abilene
I spend lots of my time flying out to la
And if you've never been there you don't know how lonesome big towns can be

Oh what I'd give to be a country girl again
To be with my people my man and my kids
To live in a house about a mile down the road from mama's
Oh Lord what I'd give to be a country girl again

To go walking down a country road at sunset
And see colors I could almost touch right over head
To hear the gentle breeze a blowing at the treetops
No out in the country there is no talk that God is dead

Oh what I'd give to be a country girl again...
Oh what I'd give to be a country girl again
