​Rural Point Of View

This song is by Reverend Horton Heat and appears on the album Laughin' & Cryin' With The Reverend Horton Heat (2009).

Yeah, I've got a rural point of view
But I think I know the urban one, too
You don't need a gun
If you can just call 9-1-1
And a cop is at your door in just a few

They wanna take away my pickup truck
But a small electric car just gets stuck
It won't haul a load of hay
More than a half mile away
Through the weeds and through the mud and through the muck

Yeah, I've got a rural point of view
And I'm not tryin' to tell you what to do
I just think you'd find
That you just might change your mind
If you thought about the rural point of view

In the Great Depression things were bad
Anything to eat and you were glad
Baloney on your plate
And you were happy that you ate
'Cause baloney was the only choice you had

Urban folks now love organic meals
And getting them is really no big deal
I hope they don't forget
And I hope that they'd admit
That they're lucky they can eat the way they feel

Yeah, I've got a rural point of view
And I'm not tryin' to tell 'em what to do
I just think they'd find
That they just might change their mind
If they thought about the rural point of view

An Ivy-League professor loves his wheat
He says, "Pickup trucks will soon be obsolete"
That pompous little fool
Can ride his bike to school
'Cause a farmer with a truck is how he eats

Yeah, I've got a rural point of view
And I don't think he's really thought it through
I just think he'd find
That he just might change his mind
If he thought about the rural point of view

Yeah, I've got a rural point of view
And I'm not tryin' to tell you what to do
I just think you'd find
That you just might change your mind
If you thought about the rural point of view
If you thought about the rural point of view
If you thought about my rural point of view
