Roy Acuff – “Back In The Country”

BACK IN THE COUNTRY

(I) When was the last time
You got (IIm) up before the (V) Sun
And watched while the Night and Day
(IV) Melted into (I) one
When was the last time
You (IIm) really looked at (V) Rain
Dripping down the gutter
Splashing (IV) on the Window-(I) pane

My fondest memories are tied around these things
Sunday School, bedtime rules, Grandma’s squeaky Swing
Sneaking out behind the Barn, my love would meet me there
Tripping in the hallway over Grandpa’s rocking Chair

CHORUS
(I) Back In The Country-
Now I (IIm) know you’re gonna (V) say
Back In The Country-
Don’t you (IV) wish that you had (I) stayed
Back In The Country-
Where the (IIm) Roses still grow (V) wild
Back In The Country-
Where you (IV) walked those country (I) miles

When was the last time you saw Sundown thru a Tree
Sitting on the front Porch in a cool evenin’ Breeze
When was the last time that you heard a Bobwhite song
When was the last time, I’ll bet it’s been too long

CHORUS
