Slim Dusty - Country Livin' lyrics

There's an old fashioned country way of livin'
There's an old country way to greet a friend
I'm shakin' off the shackles of this big town
And I'm headin' for the country ways again

There's an old fashioned country way of singin'
Songs that are truthful and worthwhile
Songs of the life we live together
Oh I mean to say we call it country style

There's an old fashioned country way of playin'
Without the pomp and style of any star
It's what we call a good old get together
Stringin' with a pick 'n strum guitar - oh yeah

[Instrumental]

Oh you can't beat a good old country barn dance
They come for miles up and down the line
And if they feel like dancin' until daylight
Oh well no-one seems to care about the time

Oh there's mateship in a good old country bar room
For everyone knows everybody else
And as you laugh and listen to the dirty stories
And maybe throw a few around yourself

[Instrumental]

So you ask me city friend, why I am leavin'
To share again the droughts and floods and strife
You ask me why I'm singin' country music
Well country music, friend, is a way of life

* There's an old fashioned country way of livin'
There's an old country way to greet a friend
Though fame and wealth may never be extended
Your wealth is in the hearts of your dear friends

There's an old fashioned country way of livin'
There's an old country way to greet a friend
I'm shakin' off the shackles of this big town
And I'm headin' for the country ways again
Yeah, headin' for the country ways again
