"Black Country Rock" as written by and David Bowie....
Pack a pack horse and rest up here on
Black country rock
You never know, you might find it here on
Black country rock

Pack a pack horse and rest up here on
Black country rock
You never know, you might find it here on
Black country rock

Some say the view is crazy
But you may adopt another point of view
So if it's much too hazy
You can leave my friend and me with fond adieu

Pack a pack horse and rest up here on
Black country rock
You never know, you might find it here on
Black country rock

Pack a pack horse and rest up here on
Black country rock
You never know, you might find it here on
Black country rock

Some say the view is crazy
But you may adopt another point of view
So if it's much too hazy
You can leave my friend and me with fond adieu

Some say the view is crazy
But you may adopt another point of view
So if it's much too hazy
You can leave my friend and me with fond adieu, ah

    General CommentArt is always susceptible of a multitude of interpretations, but "black" music (as soul, gospel, blues, jazz, r&b, etc. were once referred to), "country", and "rock" were, roughly, the categorical divisions of English-speaking popular music at the time Bowie was writing this song. They also represented divisions in society that sorely needed, and arguably still need bridging. On one level, then, I have always taken it to be an ode to pop music and it's place in the culture, which, although not as formal or sophisticated as some other types of discourse, still offers a more or less level playing field for people to come together to experience and appreciate each other's creativity
