​Country Boy

This song is by Otis Spann and appears on the Compilation album Ebony and Ivory Blues (2012).

You know I'm just a country boy
And a long, long way from home
You know what a fool country boy I am
And a long, long way from home
You know peoples, I can't read or write
Peoples, please don't do me wrong

Can you remember, baby
Can you remember what it was you said
Oh oh
Can you remember what it was you said
When I was sick and down, woman
I needed you to rub my achin' head

I was born in the country, baby
Peoples, and I've never been to town
Yes, I was born in the country
Peoples, I've never been to town
You know, why don't you reconsider, baby
And I'd be layin' your burden down

You know
I've been having trouble ev'rywhere I go
I've been having trouble ev'rywhere I go
Yeah because I'm a country boy
I've been driftin' from door to door

I'm gonna get this freight train smokin'
Back down the road I'm goin'
I'm gonna get this freight train smokin'
People, down the road I'm goin'
You know I'm goin' back to Mississippi
People, where I was bread and born
