About "The Country Song"
The Country Song
I asked the lord
For two horses and a gun
And a cowboy hat,
So I could ride into the sun
But he said no.

I asked my wife
If she could hold my tired hand
But I was not her kind
So she went lookin’ for a man
To tell her woes

I’ll find my way home tonight somehow
Even if my guide’s a firefly.
All I need is you right by my side
Waiting for the light.

I told myself
“Boy, you really need to try,
You need a brand new car,
You need a brand new life.”
And so I tried.

I took a job,
I worked from nine-to-five,
I bought a brand new car,
I found a brand new wife.
But I just cried.

I’ll find my way home tonight somehow,
Even if my guide’s a firefly.
All I need I you right by my side
Waiting for the light.

I asked the lord
If I could ride into the sun
With just a cowboy hat,
And two horses and a gun.
And he said go.
