From the recording A Girl Down In Mexico


Fifteen trucks, doors open wide (way out in the country)
Spillin’ a sweet song into the night (way out in the country)
Bunch of people dancin’ dusty in the dirt (way out in the country)
Others be comin’ when they get off work (way out in the country)

Way out in the country we all have a good time
Beer and wine, salt and lime
Way out in the country people know how to be
Free to do as they please
Way out in the country; I say, way out in the country

Lightnin’ bugs lightin’ up Mason jars (way out in the country)
Hangin’ like lanterns off the back of some cars (way out in the country)
Some of us’re from the city; some from ranches and farms (way out in the country)
Now we’re all in this together, man, doin’ no harm (way out in the country)

You and me headin’ off to a corner of the night (way out in the country)
Yeah, you and me, babe, makin’ everything right (way out in the country)
Skinny-dippin’ in the lake, foot off the brake (way out in the country)
Tomorrow never comes ’cause tonight’s never done (way out in the country)

There ain’t no time to sleep; we can do that next week
Way out in the country
