Josh Ritter – Cumberland Lyrics

[Verse 1]
All of my friends said “What’s out in Cumberland?”
“Gonna get lonesome when you get out to Cumberland”
“Stay in the city, boy, winter is a wonderland”
They all mean well
I will remember them

[Chorus]
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now, country now
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now

[Verse 2]
Wander through the holler, honey
Wander through the glen
Neighborly with fiddleheads, copperheads, and moccasins
Build a little cabin, honey, throw a window in
Watch the breeze blowin’ through the hickories and dandellins

[Chorus]
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now, country now
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now

[Bridge]
If you get there before I do
Tell everybody I’m a’coming too

[Verse 3]
I know a pretty girl
She’s the prettiest there’s ever been
Wild as a weed, sweeter than a mandolin
I ain’t a handsome man but I bet she’d take me as I am
I haven’t met her yet
Bet she lives in Cumberland

[Chorus]
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now, country now
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now

[Verse 4]
So before you start talkin’ ’bout the wonders of the world again
The Taj Mahal, the Great Wall, the places that I never been
Take a little drive, take a little trip to Heaven and
Wonder for a while if it’s Paradise or Cumberland

[Chorus]
(Oh boy)
Get yourself back to the country now, country now
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now

[Chorus]
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now, to the country now
(Oh boy)
Gotta get yourself back to the country now
