Mike's Big Book of Songs

A LIttle Country

well the fields are all paved
and the slabs have been laid
for the sub division and the mall
there are opportunities
in the petroleum industries

but there's still a little country in us all
we're a long way from the farm
but there's an old nag in that barn
i'm gonna ride down the highway sitting tall
there are chickens in my yard
and i still work too damn hard
'cause there's still a little country in us all

my son he works off shore
on an oil platform
my daughter works inside fielding calls
for a man in an office
counting beans and drinking coffee
but there's still a little country in them all

they're a long way from the farm...

now the judge incarcerated
mickey for a drug related
crime, the writing was on the wall
mickey had some priors
so it came as no surprise for
there's still a little country in us all

we're a long way from the farm,,,

well the fields are all paved
and the slabs have been laid
but there's still a little country in us all.
