​In The Country

This song is by Dando Shaft and appears on the album An Evening With Dando Shaft (1970).

Suddenly the leaves are greener,
Summer Sunday coming round
Take a trip into the country
See the leaves, see the flowers
Sit and sniff and watch the hours pass
I hate your city, all the week day long

You know I'm striking out for better places
Time to sit and dream awhile
Take a trip into the country
See the leaves, see the flowers
Sit and sniff and watch the hours pass
I smell your city, all the week day long

Have you felt that dew wet dawn grass
Tickling ten tiny toes
Take a trip into the country
See the leaves, see the flowers
Sit and sniff and watch the hours pass
I'll leave your city, all the week day long

I walk away that city coating
From your eyes and see a new
Greens the colour of the morning
It is waiting there for you
Just take a trip into the country
See the leaves, see the flowers
Sit and sniff and watch the hours pass
I hate leave your city, all the week day long
