"Country Livin' (The World I Know)" as written by Martin Daniel Mc Kinney and Esthero,....
The world I know
Is a world too slow.
If you don't move fast enough, keep your head low.

The world I know
Is a world much too slow.
If you can't move fast enough, child, better stay on the low, child.

And I want to lay in the passenger seat of a car;
We could drive around all night.
We wouldn't have to go too far,
Just look at the stars.
This night could be ours.

The world I know
Is a world too slow.
If you don't move fast enough, keep your head low.

The world I know
Is a world much too slow.
If you can't move fast enough, child, better stay on the low, child.

And I want a life lover that'll go that far.
We don't have to do this right.
Do you know who you are?
This ride could be ours.
Just look at those stars.

And we are never going home.
This ride is far too long to travel alone,
And the moon will shine brightly on this road.
Which way do you want to go?

The world I know
Is a world too slow.
If you don't move fast enough, keep your head low.

The world I know
Is a world much too slow.
If you can't move fast enough, child, better stay on the low, child.

And I want a life lover that'll go that far.
We don't have to do this right.
Yes I know who you are.
This ride could be ours.
Just look at those stars.
Baby, we could be stars.

    General Commentthis is probably one of the most perfect-sounding songs ever made, right up there with Isaac Hayes' Walk on By and the Beatles' Yesterday. The sentiment is clear that she's bored with her life, with the slow plodding days and nights of country living. I feel like I just want to pack up and leave it all behind too, and this is my theme song.

    General CommentI just love this song.

    You get the feeling that you're in a car driving along a moonlit country road. I love the slight crackling surface noise, and pulse that work perfectly with her wonderfuly clear voice.
