  • That hot old summer sun makes you
    Beg for your next breath
    So you best be on the creek bank
    Laying in the shade
    Chewing on a hickory twig
    Pass the bottle I'll have me a swig
    I ain't got a lot but I think I got it made

    I'm just laid up here in a country state of mind
    Catching these fish like they're going out of style drinking this home-made wine
    Hey if the sun don't come up tomorrow, people I've had a good time
    I'm just laid up here in a country state of mind

    I bet the old man's in the kitchen he's got my kind of music on his radio
    Aah, drinking his beer and
    Dialing up the request line
    Mama and old Aunt Joan probably in the
    Dining room trying to use the phone
    Me, I'm thinking about that girl and later tonight

    I'm just laid up here in a country state of mind
    Catching these fish like they're going out of style drinking this home-made wine
    Well if the sun don't come up tomorrow, people I've had a good time
    I'm just laid up here in a country state of mind

    You know the rednecks and the preppies; they're in their disco and honky tonks
    Somewhere between raising hell and Amazing Grace
    Lord I know just how they feel
    You gotta to get out and kick up your heels
    And ain't it great to be living in the USA

    Me, I'm just laid up here in a
    Country state of mind
    Catching these fish like they're going out of style drinking this home-made wine
    If the sun don't come up tomorrow,
    People I've had a good time
    I'm just laid up here in a country state of mind
