Boy From The Country Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Because he called the forest brother
Because he called the earth his mother
They drove him out into the rain
Some people even said that the boy from the country was insane

Because he spoke with fish in the creek
He tried to tell us that the animals could speak
Who knows, perhaps they do, how do you know they don't
Just because they're never spoken to you

Boy from the country, left his home, he was young
Boy from the country, he loves the sun
Yes, he does, yes, he does

He tried to tell us we should love the land
We just turned our heads and laughed
See we did not understand

Sometimes I think the boy from the country
Is the only one who sees
'Cause the boy from the country
Doesn't want to see the forest for the trees

Boy from the country, left his home, he was young
Boy from the country, he loved the sun
