  • Man, I sure do love this time of year
    Snow starts covering up the old John Deere
    Old school lights hanging off the roof
    Front porch mistletoe kissing booth
    Cup filled up with some feel-good Christmas cheer
    'Round here

    We got snowflakes falling on an old two lane
    Red-bow wreaths on a window pane
    Just sitting 'round the fire with the ones who love me (ones who love me)
    Miles from the city and the crazy crowds
    Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
    Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)

    Upright piano in the living room
    Singing Silent Night just a little out of tune
    Christmas Vacation on the TV screen
    Wise man missing from the manger scene
    Kids can't sleep 'cause Santa's coming soon, yeah real soon

    We got snowflakes falling on an old two lane
    Red-bow wreaths on a window pane
    Just sitting 'round the fire with the ones who love me (ones who love me)
    Miles from the city and the crazy crowds
    Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
    Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)

    We got a tree, goes up to the ceiling
    Chop up the wood and go get the candles
    Sled down the hill, we'll get the 4-wheeler
    And take you back up to the top
    You could be 10 miles away
    And see my house from the road
    Man, we got it all decked out
    Lord, I can't wait to go home

    And see snowflakes falling on an old two lane
    Front-yard Santa with a reindeer sleigh
    Just sitting 'round the fire with the ones who love me (ones who love me)
    Miles from the city and the crazy crowds
    Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
    Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)
    Ah yeah
    Doing Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do)
    Christmas in the country (do-do, do-do, do-do) Writer/s: Ashley Gorley, Chris Tomlin, David Arthur Garcia, Thomas Rhett Akins, Jr.
