Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In LA)

by

Glen Campbell



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was yet another huge hit for Glen Campell, one of the first Country artists to experience crossover success, and it's one of this most introspective. He sings about having achieved success and wealth beyond his wildest dreams, but he has lost something of himself and his roots in the process and is wondering why he isn't fulfilled by his stardom. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter wrote this and three other songs on Rhinestone Cowboy, and they also produced the album. Other hits they worked on include "Don't Pull Your Love (Out)," "It Only Takes A Minute" and "Ain't No Woman (Like The One I've Got)."

The followup to Rhinestone Cowboy, and basically a sequel, too. I think I actually like the melody for this one more, but Rhinestone Cowboy was a little bigger hit.

Don breaks down "Hotel California" and other songs he wrote as a member of the Eagles. Now we know where the "warm smell of colitas" came from.
