Country Girl Lyrics

by Ray LaMontagne

Country girl
Country girl
If you don't mind
Maybe we could give it a whirl
Left my home and family for
The sound of the rock and roll band
Been so long I can't recall
How it all began

Country girl
The Southern kind
Tennessee
On my mind
Left my home and family for
The soul in a rock and roll song
Just like you I could sure use
Someone to lean on

We made love upon the mesa
Desert sky died a blazing rose
I fell into her just like
That leaf falls into water
Just like saying lonesome I suppose
I suppose

Country girl
Your papa's pride
Dusty boots
Easy smile
Left my home and family for
A life there ain't no choosing
Country girl don't throw me
No illusions

Country girl
Country girl
Graceful as a sparrow
Pretty as a pearl
Left my home and all that I've known
For the road and the tale I can tell
Lying here with you in the fire glow
I'd swear you was an angel, angel
