Shade Lyrics

by Joe Nichols

I don't want a fast car, don't need a four lane highway
There's not another place I'd rather be
'Cause out here in the country, bluebirds sing for nothin'
And the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah, the shade comes free with a tree

The tree came with a mountain right beside the river
Where the ground makes one heck of a seat
The mountain counts for somethin'
The view is worth a fortune
And the shade comes free with a tree

I never had a dollar that could buy me what I'm feelin'
And I'm feelin' bad as good as I can be
I need to be reminded when I'm lookin' for a bargain
Not to overlook what's right in front of me

I'll never make a killin' tryin' to make a livin'
But I make enough to raise a family
And I bought a piece of heaven of County Road Eleven
Where the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah, where the shade comes free with a tree

I never had a dollar that could buy me what I'm feelin'
And I'm feelin' bad as good as I can be
I need to be reminded when I'm lookin' for a bargain
Not to overlook what's right in front of me

I don't want a fast car, don't need a four lane highway
There's not another place I'd rather be
Down County Road Eleven, there's this little piece of heaven
Where the shade comes free with a tree
Where the shade comes free with a tree
Yeah, the shade comes free with a tree
