Charley Pride - I Feel the Country Callin' Me Lyrics




Sometimes when I take a little break
My mind slips away to a steel green lake
About a thousand miles away from here
I got a fishin' pole and an ice cold beer

Just lyin' back in the cool green grass
Nothin' on my mind but a five pound bass
Watchin' the evenin' sun go down
The crickets are the only sound around

I feel the country callin' me
Sayin' come on home where you oughta be
Pack up your clothes and your guitar
Come home and catch a lightin' bug
And put him in a jar

Some clown got his foot inside my door
Tellin' me a joke I've heard before
My mind slips back to another time
I got that ol' bass hangin' on my line

I got an ole hound dog to be my friend
Life was so much simpler then
But then the lights start dimmin' down
And it's my turn to be a clown

I feel the people callin' me
Sayin' come on home where you oughta be
Pack up your clothes and your guitar
Come home and catch a lightin' bug
And put him in a jar

I feel the people callin' me
Sayin' come on home where you oughta be
Pack up your clothes and your guitar
Come home and catch a lightin' bug
And put him in a jar
