My Heart's In The Country

My Heart's In The Country

by Skeeter Davis

on My Heart's In The Country (1966)

My heart's in the country and I'm going back
My name is on the sign up front in flashing pretty lights
Hundreds of people pay to see me every night
And after each show they beg me for my autograph
They all think I'm happy oh what a laugh
Yes my heart's in the country on a farm in Ohio
With my mama and daddy and the only friends I know
There's a strange different yearning for a farm boy named Jack
Yes my heart's in the country and I'm going back

Oh I've had my fill of the big towns and all the glaring neon lights
I'd give anything to sit by daddy's fireplace late tonight

And just once more if I could hear him play some old tune on his violin
There'll be no show for me tonight cause I'm going home again
Yes my heart's in the country...
Yes my heart's in the country now I'm going back
