It's So Peaceful in the Country

This song is by June Christy and appears on the compilation album Gone For The Day/Fair And Warmer (1998).

The skyline of New York is a splendid sight
I know Chicago's Loop is magical at night
The natives of Cleveland, of Frisco and Boston
And natives of cities a stranger gets lost in

All of them tell you their city's the best
From deep in the south and from out in the west
Perhaps it's all true
But from my point of view

It's so peaceful in the country
It's so simple and quiet
You really ought to try it
You walk about and talk about
The pleasant things in life

It's so restful in the country
It's the right kind of diet
You really ought to try it
You read a book or try to cook
Like any good man's wife

City living is a pretty living
It's so full of unexpected thrills
But there's too much stone, too much telephone
There's too much of everything but trees and hills

It's so peaceful in the country
It's so simple and quiet
Someday you're bound to try it
The only place to be
The place for you and me
Where it's peaceful in the country
