Gimme that country side of life Which way I can stretch out right Gimme the countryside ooh lord That country side of life Which way I don`t get uptight Gimme the countryside I`m going down to the fishing pond where I can throw my line It don`t matter what fish I catch I only wanna rest my mind The only fish you get downtown ain`t caught with a hook and sinker Put on your brakes beep beep honk your horn look out now turn on your blinker Gimme that country side of life Which way I can stretch out right Gimme the countryside oh That country side of life Which way I don`t get uptight Gimme the countryside I was born in a Georgia town with a natural lazy streak Laid back lovers just playing their games and staying off their feet Nobody trying to get on your nerves or trying to get what you got Live and let live by the golden rule now don`t it just hit the spot Gimme that country side of life Which way I can stretch out right Gimme the countryside ooh lord That country side of life Which way I don`t get uptight Gimme the countryside Gimme that country side of life Which way I can stretch out right Gimme the countryside ooh lord That country side of life Which way I don`t get uptight Gimme the countryside
