Country Road
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


Listen

Almost heaven, West Jamaica
True ridge mountains
Shining down the river
All my friends there
Older than those ridge
Younger than the mountains
Blowin' like a breeze
Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my ol' mama
Take me home country roads

I heard her voice
In the mornin' hour she calls me
Said "Son you remind me of my home far away"
Drivin' down the road I feel a sickness, I sure did
Oh yesterday, yesterday

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

Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my my my my my my mama
Won't you take me go home country roads
Oh I like that, me too

Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my my my my my my mama
Won't you take me go home country roads
Go, get ahead together

Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Jamaica, my my my my my my mama
Won't you take me go home country roads

[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
