I don't want the city woman, she all too fast
Give me a slow country girl with a lot of class
So I'm going, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Arkansas here I come, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Now if I can't live independent, why live like a bum
It's just a hop a skip and a jump

Now when I get to the country gone build me a house and fence
Me and my country girl won't pay no rent
So I'm going, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Arkansas here I come, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Now if I can't live independent, why live like a bum
It's just a hop a skip and a jump

Piano Solo

Now when I get to the country, where I made my start
I'll take my girl and love her to her heart
I'm going, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Arkansas here I come, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Now if I can't live independent, why live like a bum
It's just a hop a skip and a jump

Now when I get to the country, gone buy a house and fence
Me, my little girl won't pay no rent
I'm going, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Arkansas here I come, it's just a hop a skip and a jump
Now if I can't live independent, why live like a bum
It's just a hop a skip and a jump

Vamp
It's just a hop a skip and a jump (4x)
Now if I can't live independent, why live like a bum
It's just a hop a skip and a jump
