Jim Cuddy – Countrywide Soul lyrics

I was a lonely boy
Out there searching
Couldn't find much joy
Too old to fake it
Too young to hide it away

I played the master thief
Stealing the lives of the people I'd meet
Faking away each day so gracelessly

But there's a price that must be paid
You can't hide out every day
Somebody comes along
And blows your cover all away

Oh I lay down in a meadow in the sky
And I held my breath as I fell into your eyes
I love your hair smells sweet like pure Rocky Mountain air
Like the big sky shining on a Winnipeg night
Dust in the air and the Northern Lights
All in your country wide soul
I love your country wide soul

You sure walk along slow
That's the only speed I've ever seen you go
You take good care of me as the days go by
Is that the mail train I see
Well I hope it's not carrying any news for me
I just can't see myself on the company line

There's another season gone and lord I'm feeling strong
Got to find a way to keep this dream dreaming on

Oh I lay down in a meadow in the sky
And I held my breath as I fell into your eyes
I love your face well it takes me to so many beautiful places
Driving through the night under Prairie stars
Listening to a band in a St. Johns bar
Down by the water on a Halifax shore
Listening to the wind and the ocean roar
Freight train rolling through the Great Divide
The magic in the mushrooms of pei
All in your country wide soul
