Well, this big city life is gettin' me down
There's just too many people around
There's dirt in the air and crime in the street
High rise buildings and cold concrete

This rat race sure enough takes a toll
I wanna run off to my fishin' hole
Take me back, take me back, take me back to the country
Take me back, take me back, take me back to the country

Where the stars at night outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly and the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country

This traffic jam is a making me mad
I miss the simple life I had
Peace and quiet running free
I wanna go home to my family

I'm sick of the clock, sick of the phone
Out in the country, my time's my own
Take me back, take me back, take me back to the country
Take me back, take me back, take me back to the country

Where the stars at night outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly and the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country

To the country
Oh, take me boys

Where the stars at night outshine those city lights
Take me back to the country
Where the eagles fly and the treetops touch the sky
Take me back to the country
Take me back to the country, yeah
