Music & Lyrics © 1972, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Country Rode

Let me out
And set me free
On a Country Rode
Is where I want to be

Give me a little
Of your country land
And you can be in my
Country band

Going up the country
One fine day
Took off my shoes
And threw then away

Old hippies
Guitars corrode
Walking down
A Country Rode

Oh hippies
Let me go
Let me into
Your Country Rode

Going up the country
One fine day
Took off my shoes
And threw them away

Oh hippies
Let me go
Let me into your
Country Road

You snuck into an airplane
And flew out to L.A.
Told ‘em all about country life
And asked if they would play

L.A. thought it was groovy
And thumbed up to Vermont
They sat around and said “far out...
...but is this what we want?”

They jumped around the whole east coast
Until they found a vineyard where
They had seen James Taylor so
They settled down there

They threw off their shoes
Bought some faded blue genes
And then they grew their hair
“We must be in heaven, man,
or at least somewhere.”

(fiddle solo)
