GOING RIDING IN THE COUNTRY IN A MODEL A FORD

PAST COWS AND THE CHICKENS, THROUGH THE FIELDS OF CORN

OUT ACROSS THE FLAT LANDS AND THE ROLLING HILLS

FEEL THE SUMMER SUN SHINING, HEAR THE MOTOR PURR

AND I'M JUST SITTING ON THE FRONT SEAT WITH TWO FRIENDS OF MINE

I'M GOING TO THE COUNTRY SURE MAKES ME FEEL FINE

 

WORKING IN THE COUNTRY, CLEANING UP YARDS

WITH A MODEL A TRUCK YOU KNOW IT CAN'T BE HARD

FOLKS SMILE AND PASS US, WALKING DOWN THE ROAD

GOING TO THE COUNTY DUMP WITH ANOTHER LOAD.

AND I'M JUST SITTING ON THE FRONT SEAT WITH TWO FRIENDS OF MINE

I'M GOING TO THE COUNTRY SURE MAKES ME FEEL FINE.

 

.DOWN GENTLE ROADS WITH NO WHITE LINE

LIKE A PATHWAY TO ANOTHER TIME

OLD HOUSES PASSING, FRONT YARDS OF FLOWERS

I COULD RIDE IN THE COUNTRY FOR HOURS AND HOURS.

AND I'M JUST SITTING ON THE FRONT SEAT WITH TWO FRIENDS OF MINE

GOING TO THE COUNTRY SURE MAKES ME FEEL FINE.

 

HAYFIELDS ARE CUT, HARVEST HAS BEGUN

RIDING THROUGH THE ORCHARDS IN THE MORNING SUN

GOOD TIMES IN THE COUNTRY, CAN'T YOU SMELL THE AIR

APPLES AND APRICOTS AND PLUMS TO SPARE.

I'M JUST SITTING ON THE FRONT SEAT WITH TWO FRIENDS OF MINE

GOING TO THE COUNTRY SURE MAKES ME FEEL FINE
