Country life    (video)    (intro)


††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††† G†††††† C††††††††††††††††† FG

Oh, I like to rise when the sun, she rises, early in the morning,

C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††† G†† †††††††††C†††††††††† †††††††††††††FG

I like to hear them small birds singing merrily upon their lay-land.

††††††††††††† C††††††††† ††††††††††††††††F†† ††††††G††

And hurrah for the life of a country kid,

††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† C†††††† - G

and to ramble in the new mown hay.

1. In the spring we sow, in the harvest mow,

††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††F††††† ††††††††G

††† and thatís how the seasons around they go,

†††††††††††††† C††† †††††††††††††††††††††F†††††† ††††G

††† but of all the times, if choose I may,

††††††††††††† C††††††††††† ††††††††G††††††††††††††† C††††† - G

††† itís to ramble in the new mown hay.

2. In the winter when the sky is gray,

††††††††† C††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††F†††††† ††G

††† we edge and ditch our lives away.

††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G

††† In the summer when the sun shines gay,

††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††† †††††G†††††††††††††† C†††† - G

††† we go ramble in the new mown hay.
