Well Dan was a man
He'd grown up on the land
Till he left for another way of life
He got a plum job
Saved a few bob
Set himself up with a city bride
Well they dressed up flash
And they hit all the traps
But he knew he wasn't satisfied
Told his wife one day, 'I'll have to go away
I can't change my countryside'

'Cause there's a shack on the flat
And it's a-way outback
Where a campfire's burnin' bright
If you come with me
I'll show you how to be
At home in the countryside
At home, in the countryside

Now Farmer Brown left for the town
'Cause the drought and the costs had crippled him
Well its hard to adjust but you can if you must
That's what he told his country friends
But even then his life felt thin
He knew he wasn't satisfied
Closed his eyes at night, hoping that he might
Wake up in the countryside

CHORUS

Even then his life felt thin
He knew he wasn't satisfied
Closed his eyes at night, hoping that he might
Wake up in the countryside

CHORUS

Well the moon's off the ridge
Over a creek bed camp
The gum trees are callin' me tonight
There's a place I know where we all will go
When we're back in the countryside
When we're back in the countryside
Well we're back in the countryside
