Take Me Home Country Roads

Toots and the Maytals

Take Me Home Country Roads Lyrics

Listen

[Verse 1]
Almost heaven, West Jamaica
True ridge mountains, shining down the river
All my friends there, older than those ridge
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

[Chorus]
Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my ol' momma
Take me home country roads

[Verse 2]
I heard her voice, in the mornin' hour she calls me
Said "Son you remind me of my home far away"
And drivin' down the road I feel a sickness
I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

[Verse 3]
All my memories, all gathered 'round her
My my lady swingin' through the water (water)
Dark and dusty painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, tears fall out my eyes

[Chorus] x 3
