escaped from the city
with my car and my clothes,
i swore off the whiskey
and the cold

now I rise with the sun
do what needs to be done
then I head to the porch
for a smoke

well, it’s all well and good
i ain’t doin’ no harm,
i’m just searchin’ for
country livin’s charm.

cigarrette in your lips
with your crimson dress on
you knew every word
to every song

singin’ “say you won’t leave me,
I won't do you wrong”
i know it ain’t easy
life is long

then curl me up
inside your arms
and we'll go searching for country livin’s charms

and i know it ain't easy
your daddy won't be happy
he had other ideas
but the one thing i know
is you do what you must
with whoever you trust
and if you gotta go, you gotta go

so say you won’t leave me,
i won’t do you wrong,
i know it ain’t easy
life is long

I’ll curl you up
inside my arms,
and we’ll go searching
for country livin’s charms
