"The Country Life" as written by and Daniel Tashian....
Well, Mama thinks I'm made out of money
Daddy thinks we need more time
Sister's got her own opinion,
Caught her on the other line
I ain't trying to say they're crazy
I don't wanna say they're wrong
I ain't trying to complicate it
I just wanna sing my song

So long to the city life
So long to the neon sign
I'm gone
I'll trade the trouble, and this drive
for the country life

If I could get in touch with my cousin
maybe we could go away for awhile
If we ever wanna come back
Girl, you know we're gonna be back in style
Twenty-seven hours later
We could buy a couple bottles of wine
We don't need the conversation
'Cause tonight, we're going back in time

so long to the city life
so long to the neon sign
I'm gone
I'll trade the trouble, and this drive

so long to the city life
so long to the neon sign
I'm gone
I'll trade the trouble, and this drive
for the country life

    General CommentI will be the first person to comment on any of the silverseas songs !

    I love this song and all of the other silver seas songs

    This song is about someone who is sick and tired of living in the city and they want to get away and move out into the country - they country life and they want to escape from reality and have fun with those that remain close to them
