I left the farm, headed for the city, to find my fortune and fame But ever since I left there, life hasn't been the same Lately at night when the sun goes down My thoughts drift back to my ol' town (take me back) God... I miss the country, I miss my home (Kentucky) Concrete skylines and waitin' in long lines, bright flashin' neon lights Morning rush hour traffic and hazy starless nights (Well) The city life ain't the life for me Cause the city ain't what I tought it be (where i wanna be) I'm goin' back to the country, I'm goin' home (Kentucky)
Mountain ranges, and wide open spaces, countless stars in the sky The smell of homemade cornbread and the taste of warm apple pie Huntin', fishin' and sweet corn pickin' Are among the things that I've been missin' (some of) I'm comin' back to the country, I'm comin' home (on my way) (Kentucky) I'm comin' (back) home
