My Country Man

Tags: love

I left on that midday plane to Jackson
Two overfilled suitcases and a dream of better
Nothing in my belly but butterflies and belief
That somehow a new landscape meant a new love for me

Relocating for love?
Sounded rather risky
Or downright desperate
Or desperately dumb
But I was numb
To the life I had been living
And the tears I had been crying
And the lies I had been buying

See, I had a vision of love
And it was tall, red, and sweet
Like a cold, refreshing glass
Of my favorite fizzy drink
And never did my silly mind
Ever stop to think
That finding my dream lover
Would not happen for me

'Cause you see...
I wanted me a country man
A strapping soldier with a Mississippi tan
With low sexy eyes and a slow sexy walk
A slow sexy smile with a slow sexy talk
A chivalrous man who'd pull out my seat
Open my doors; lay his jacket at my feet
A man who would appreciate backrubs on demand
And a ride or die curvy girl with a bible in her hand

A libidinous lover who'd light him afire
One who'd meet him at the door dressed only in desire
A woman with a heart like that of his mother
And the build of a lover, and lovin' like no other
One who would encourage him to live out his design,
And be his soft place when the world was unkind

'Cause you see......
This country-lovin city girl would not accept any less
Fair would only be fair; only best for best
A country man with protector arms
Who’d notice a threat and sound the alarm
Soft-spoken but forceful; a hard-working provider
Who’d appreciate a woman that allowed him to guide her
A moral man with a dirty mind
And an ambitious hustler with a legal grind
'Cause you see....
The affection I was settling for didn’t amount to much
Was on a ledge of loneliness trying not to jump
A home, cars, career success
It all just felt like vain excess

I wanted love
I wanted love
I wanted love
so.....
This city girl knew
just What she had to do
No matter how crazy it looked
I had to be where love would find me
No matter how long it took
So I packed my bags and booted my baggage
It was already in the plan
My gamble for love paid off tenfold
When I found my country man!
