"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 CommentThis song is about drugs. Black rock is a slang name for crack cocaine. Bowie did a lot of cocaine. By using the term "black country rock" and "up here" Bowie conjures images of a mountain. He's equating
    getting high on cocaine with taking a trip to black country rock. The lyrics "you never know, you might find it here" refer to the mind opening experience of getting high and the experience you have while being high. The line "if it's much too hazy" refers to the clouded state of mind that drugs cause. The last two lines refer to those who simply aren't into drugs and don't like them, to whom Bowie's advice is to leave him and his high friend alone to experience it themselves if you aren't up for such an experience.
