Traditional Bluegrass Song: Original Authorship Unknown, though David Grisman recordings of the track credit H. Payne.

lyrics

Well I'm going back to the country
I can't pay the rent
My mum and dad will sure be mad
At all the money I spent

Chorus: Now I know
Just what they meant
I ain't broke
But brother I'm badly bent

Well I had a lot of money
But to the city I went
I met a lot of good-looking girls
And that's where my money went

[chorus]

Well when I get back to the country
I'll be living in a tent
My mum and dad will sure be mad
At all the money I spent

[chorus]

Well I'm a-going back to the country
I can't pay the rent
Now I know they're going to be mad
At all the money I spent

[chorus]
