Country Rose

Lyrics

I was born in Hamburg

Winter 1981

My Grandpa was a preacher

I am a son of his son

I never knew the other side

They died before I could shoot the gun

 

Just a young boy, wild and free to chase the wind

I wish I was back in them ol' woods again

Where the trees touch the heavens 

Where the river took me in

 

Take me home

Oh, my Country Rose 

Where I can play

Where nobody goes

Lay me down, honey-o

In a cottonwood grove

Where I can sleep

Where nobody knows

 

I was raised in a small town

And I'll die in one too

I ain't ever seen a city that had a sky as blue

And I want to see the stars a-shining

From my back porch in town

 

Take me home

Oh, my Country Rose

Where I can play

Where nobody goes

Lay me down, honey-o

In a cottonwood grove

Where I can sleep

Where nobody knows

 

Things are changing so fast

Wherever I go

From the sidewalks to the buildings

From my head to my toes

Sometimes I wish I never got that itch to roam

 

Take me home

Oh, my Country Rose

Where I can play

Where nobody goes

Lay me down, honey-o

In a cottonwood grove

Where I can sleep

Where nobody knows

Nobody knows
