- Man, well it looks like this town ain't nothing but bad luck and trouble.
Man, ain’t that the truth.

Well I don’t know, but your gal left ya, and I got no more dough.
- So why not we go down to the country?
Down the country?

No, I never knew nothing about down in the country. I was raised in the town my whole life. Bad luck old town.
- Man I know all about it, man. Tell you what to do. Look here.

- This bad luck city, it’s really got me down. I got to leave here, I want to leave this town.
How you going to ride there?

Where you going sleep at?
- Right underneath the stars. Going down the country. Might as well just show you boy.(?)

- I going the country, where the sun does shine. I going the country, change the pace of time.(?)
How you going to ride there?

- Down in the country, you can drink your wine. Down in the country, you have a real good time.
What about the people there?
- They don’t wanna dog you round.

- It grows up out the ground. Going down the country. Might as well just show you boy.(?)
Oh! You got me now!


- We going the country, where the sun does shine. We going the country, change the pace of time.(?)
How we going ride there?
