Country Girls

 
Description
Short Song Description:
The extinction of the country girl is directly related to the extinction of the culture of the US. They have both been replaced by extremely debased and primitive alternatives. I feel sorry for anyone who never knew either.

COUNTRY GIRLS


There are no more country girls
Or country folks that I can see.
No wild tribes left in the world,
Just refugees from decency.

She sat by the river, with my head in her lap,
Pet me like a wild critter, his leg caught in a trap.

There are no more county fairs
Carnivals or children selling lemonade.
Nothing left to leave our heirs,
Church picnics or baby parades.

There are no dangerous animals
running free in the land,
No god-fearing cannibals,
just savages with no clan.

She sat by the river, with my head in her lap,
Pet me like a wild critter, his leg caught in a trap.
