New West – Promised Land lyrics

I can see for miles out my back door
Those hills roll on forever
I'm working hard at living easy
It's my full-time endeavour
People in the city are living fast
They trade what's good for what won't last
Time for money, love for fame
Just why I can't explain
I know I'm living in the promised land
This simple life some people can't understand
Instead of banking on silver and gold
I've got my wife and my children to hold
There's never been a happier man
Cos I can say I'm living in the promised land
She's looking up when the sun goes down
The moon and stars surround her
She comes to me in the sweet night air
And makes me glad I found her
There's country music on our radio
But late at night we rock and roll
If there's a heaven here on earth
Then I believe I've found it first
[Jeff Swaim; ©1997 New West]
