  • On the country side of heaven
    You walk along the emerald brooks
    Where the fish are always bitin'
    You don't even need a hook, nah-ah

    Horses run across the amber
    Ain't no fences way up there
    Brush the stars on the midway
    Of St. Peter's county fair

    Whoa, an angel plays a southern hymn
    On a silver mandolin
    Shining in the delta sun

    Prayers dance across the prairie
    Nothin' there is ordinary
    Always with the ones you love

    On the country side of heaven
    Whoa
    On the country side of heaven
    Whoa

    Kids are jumping off the back porch
    Into a cloud up in the sky
    Water turns into sweet tea
    On the bayou, by and by

    Whoa, an angel plays a southern hymn
    On a silver mandolin
    Shining in the delta sun

    Prayers dance across the prairie
    Nothin' there is ordinary
    Always with the ones you love

    On the country side of heaven
    Whoa,
    On the country side of heaven
    I wanna go (Whoa)
    To the country side of heaven
    (Whoa)
    The country side of heaven

    On the country side of heaven
    Someday that's where I'll be
    Singing harmony with Jesus
    And when you get there look for me

    On the country side of heaven (Angels play a southern hymn)
    Oh (On a silver mandolin) The country side of heaven
    Oh (Shinin' in the delta sun)
    To the country side of heaven oh (prayers dance across the prairie)
    (Nothin' there is ordinary) The country side of heaven
    (Always with the ones you love)
    On the country side of heaven
    Whoa,
    On the country side of heaven
    I wanna go
    To the country side of heaven
    Heaven, heaven, heaven
    Heaven, heaven, heaven
    (On the country side of heaven oh)
