I'm going up the country
Babe, don't you wanna go?
I'm going up the country
Babe, don't you wanna go?
I'm going to some place
Where I've never been before

I'm going, I'm going
Where the water tastes like wine
I'm going
Where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water
Stay drunk all the time

I'm gonna leave this city
Got to get away
I'm gonna leave this city
Got to get away
All this fussing and fighting
Man, you know I sure can't stay

Now baby, pack your leaving trunk
You know we've got to leave today
Just exactly where we're going I cannot say
But we might even leave the U.S.A.
'Cause there's a brand new game that I wanna play

No use of you running
Or screaming and crying
'Cause you've got a home
As long as I've got mine

Songwriters
Wilson, Alan C
