1, 2, 1 2 3 4

you've spent your whole life running down that country road
getting back in shape and staying close to home
with looks yours, there's no telling how far you'll go

but you turn around when you hit the county line
you're a big fish swimming and it suits you fine
you'll be married here, you'll be buried here in time
it's no surprise

that you left me out there (left me out there)
you left me out there
I make you scream; you make me sing
until I've told you everything

the day you gave me walking papers, well, I took a hike
hitched a new direction on the old turnpike
and I hit the city limits by early light

and I found the things that i'd been searching for
all those just-like minds and those open doors
and I don't think much of the country anymore

since you left me out there (left me out there)
you left me out there
I make you scream; you make me sing
until I've told you everything

well, I know one day I'm gonna come back home
gonna see you walking down that country road
we'll stop and talk, then I'll say I have to go

and you'll bat your lashes and you'll give me a smile
the prettiest thing in a country mile
but I've been thinking in city blocks since the time you were mine

and you left me out there (left me out there)
you left me out there
I make you scream; you make me sing
until I've told you everything
