Country Girl

Album: Bare Feet (2017)
  • Oh my daddy's from Memphis
    He used to hunt in Arkansas
    And then he moved to New York City
    That's where he met my mom
    He wrote his mom and dad a letter
    "I'll be a millionaire by twenty-five"
    I don't know which one of us dreams bigger
    I have his heart and drive

    And he always told me and my sisters
    When we were scared to bait a hook
    Girls you don't want to be no city slickers
    So I'm a country girl
    I love the trees and the flowers
    And those well-spent hours
    Staring up at the stars
    Oh I'm a country girl
    Though I live in the city
    And those lights are so pretty
    But I'd happily rather be
    Sitting on the porch picking my guitar

    Oh my grandma was a lady
    She always wore dress suits and pearls
    Our favorite treat was lady fingers
    And I have her curls

    And my mama's from Australia
    And she grew up without a dad
    And so she raised a home
    That gave us what she never had

    And on the farm where I spent my childhood
    Riding horses and writing songs
    I'm still that child
    And that's still where I belong

    'Cause I'm a country girl
    I love the trees and the flowers
    Those well-spent hours
    Staring up at the stars
    Oh I'm a country girl
    Though I live in the city
    And those lights sure are pretty
    But I'd happily rather be
    Sitting on the porch picking my guitar

    But I'd happily, rather be
    Sitting on the porch picking on my guitar Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
