Our Country Soul
Lyrics
OUR COUNTRY SOUL © F. Israel

well i been hangin low had no place to go
nobody seems to know me round here no more
everybody's movin
so they won't be losin
everybody's usin' what they got to get some more

if you came along from some other time
you might think we're plain out of our minds
lookin for fame takin what we get
gettin in trouble gettin in debt
takin it back to days of rock n roll tears gettin wet years gettin old
tryin to find our country soul

everybody's laughin everybody's crashin
the count is down to one on judgement day
everybod's leanin to the left or leanin to the right
playin a game that everybody wants to play.
when we look back we'll chuckle and be gone
wondering why it always took so long
looking for love hookin up with friends
realizin that we're spendin tll the end
beneath the R&B, on top of rock and roll
telling stories that are no longer told
Tryin to find our country soul

fashion on her mind ain't cool to be too kind
on her way up she knows where she's got to climb
tryin to make a bargain in some foreign jargon
she says you don't count if you don't get to church on time

if you came down from some other place
you might ask about things we can't face
I lie to you you pass it on
a hot potatoe down a sliding pon
lookin for fame takin what we get
15 seconds on the tv set
gettin away with murder's gonna get you yet
justice blows a kiss while your leanin on a wish
askin "what's a person like me doin on a planet like this?"
tears gettin wet..years gettin old
searching for earth under streets of gold
tryin to find our country soul
tryin to find our keepin in mind our
tryin to find our country soul
