Iím gonna be a country girl again

1. The rain is falling lightly on the buildings and the cars,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E7

††† I've said goodbye to city friends, department stores and bars,

†††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

††† The lights of town are at my back, my heart is full of stars,

††††††††††††††††† B7††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

††† and I'm gonna be a country girl again.

2. I've spent my time in study, oh I've taken my degree,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E7

††† I've memorized my formulae, my A's and B's and C's.

†††††††††††††† A†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††E

††† But what I've know came long ago, and not from such as these,

†††††††††† B7†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

††† I'm gonna be a country girl again.

 

†††††††††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††† E

Oh yes, I'm gonna be a country girl again,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7

with an old brown dog, and a big front porch, and rabbits in the pen.

†††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

I tell you all the lights on Broadway don't amount to an acre of green,

†††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††† B7††††††††††††††† E

and I'm gonna be a country girl again.

3. I've wandered through the hearts of men, lookin' for a sign,

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E7

††† that here I might find happiness, I might find peace of mind.

††††† ††††††A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

†† The one who taught my lesson was the south wind through the pines,

††††††††††††††††† B7††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

††† and I'm gonna be a country girl again.

 

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††† B7††††††††††††††† A†††† - E

+ CHORUS†† + And I'm gonna be a country girl again.
