"Country Girl" as written by and Tony Iommi Terry Butler....
Fell in love with a country girl, morning sunshine
She was up from a nether world, just to bust another soul
Her eyes were an endless flame, holy lightning
Desire with a special name, made to snatch your soul away, yeah

We sailed away on a crimson tide, gone forever
Left my heart on the other side, all to break it into bits
Her smile was a winter song, a Sabbath ending
Don't sleep or you'll find me gone, just an image in the air

In dreams I think of you
I don't know what to do with myself
Time has let me down
She brings broken dreams, fallen stars,
the endless search for where you are
(sail on, sail on)

Fell in love with a country girl, morning sunshine
She was up from a nether world, just to bust another soul
Her eyes were an endless flame, unholy lady
Desire with a special name, made to snatch your soul away, oh!

Don't sail away on a crimson tide!
Don't leave your heart on the other side!
Her eyes are an endless flame
Desire with a special name
Don't ever fall in love!
Don't give your heart away!
No never, never fall in love with a country girl!

    General CommentIs anyone else getting demon/succubus feel from this?

    "Bust another soul"/"Snatch your soul away" might mean to kill/send to hell and "sail away on a crimson tide" could mean crossing the river Styx.

    General CommentI believe this song is the best on the Mob Rules album. The lyrics? I think they pretty much speak fro themselves

    General CommentYeah, this song fucking rocks. Mob Rules is awesome in general, though.

    This song reminds me so much of the story of Dido and Aeneas...

    General CommentAfter almost 15 years of listening to this song, I JUST NOW got the innuendo in the title. Dio, you are one cunning linguist!
