James Gang - Dreamin' In The Country Lyrics




Sittin' here, thinkin' 'bout the fix I'm in
Ain't no time to write a line, is it ever gonna end?
Spent my whole mornin' at the corner store
Just a-smokin' and a-jokin' with the kid next door
Gettin' aggravated 'cause my mind's gone dead
Think I'll have a little drink and then just jump right into bed

Ridin' down the street in a big ol' Cadillac
Seems to me that yesterday is at least a mile back
Havin' such a good time, havin' so much fun
Just a-dancin' and a-drinkin', probably never get done
Then all at once I hear a ringin' in my ears
Guess it must've been a dream 'cause I'm still right here

Come one day, I'll be leavin' this old country town
Come one day, I'll be headin' for the city
Havin' fun and drinkin' some, everything's gonna work out fine
One day I'll come back again, if I get the time

Eatin' maple candy underneath the maple tree
Just a-sittin' in the shade thinkin' what I wanna be
Maybe some day I'll be a movie star
Kissin' pretty girls and drivin' fancy cars
Then everybody's gonna be so proud of me
Say they knew it all along, just you wait and see

Sittin' here, thinkin' 'bout the fix I'm in
Ain't no time to write a line, is it ever gonna end?
Spent my whole mornin' at the corner store
Just a-smokin' and a-jokin' with the kid next door
Gettin' aggravated 'cause my mind's gone dead
Think I'll have a little drink and then just jump right into bed

    Joe Walsh on pedal steel. Dale Peters bass & lead vocal on this song he wrote, Jim Fox on drums & backing vocals.

  17. Robert Rabatin

    This is not Jim Fox singing it's Dale Peters, Walsh came from a rock & roll background, Fox from a jazz background, and Peters from a country background;
