Lyrics

Old Country Town

There's a place that I go in the country
When nobody else is around
Down a long road that cuts through a cornfield
And leads to an old country town

In that town lives a girl name of Sally
With straw in her long auburn hair
She once loved me so sweet and tender
The best days of my life were lived there

But I wanted gold in my pockets
I wanted jewels on my hand
I got all I was after
Now I want Sally again

In the late nights we'd walk in the meadow
And count all the jewls in the sky
She'd hold me so tight in her hayloft
And hide all the tears in her eyes

Cause I wanted gold in my pockets
I wanted jewels on my hand
I got all I was after
But now I want Sally again

There's a place that I go in the country
When nobody else is around
All alone with my gold in my mansion
Far away from my old country town
