Glen Campbell Country Boy

Livin’ in the city

Ain’t never been my idea of gettin’ it on

But the job demands that you make new plans

Before your big chance is gone

You get a house in the hills

You’re payin’ everyone’s bills

And they tell you that you’re gonna go far

But in the back of my mind

I hear it time after time

“Is that who you really are”

Country boy, you got your feet in LA

But your mind’s on Tennessee

Lookin’ back, I can remember the time

When I sang my songs for free

Country boy, you got your feet in LA

Take a look at everything you own

But now and then, my heart keeps goin’ home

Talkin’ on the telephone

Settin’ up another day of people to meet

You’ve gotta do what’s right

You’ve gotta spend the night

Stayin’ in touch with the street

When you’re surrounded by friends

They say the fun never ends

But I guess I’ll never figure it out

‘Cause in the back of my mind

I hear it time after time

“Is this what it’s all about”

Country boy, you got your feet in LA

But your mind’s on Tennessee

Lookin’ back, I can remember the time

When I sang my songs for free

Country boy, you got your feet in LA

Take a look at everything you own

But now and then, my heart keeps goin’ home [2x]
