Country Boy


by Margaret Whitfield
recording of 1956, Chicago

from Hide Away: The Best of Freddie King (Rhino R2-71510), copyright notice

I'm just a little country boy
Lookin' for my pride and joy
I came to the city just to see what I could see

I just made it in your town
Thought I'd take a look around
I wanna tell you baby
Just how good you look to me

My mama told me there will be sometime like this
She told me there would be some moments here will flip
She warned me of a lot of things I had to do
But she didn't tell me I would meet somebody like you

Somebody take a chance with me
I want you to romance with me
You might say I'm coy
'Cause I'm just a little country boy

I'm just a little country girl
Living in a great big world
I met some country boy
And I've got some news for you

He swept me right off my feet
Made my life complete
My heart skipped a beat
'Cause he thrilled me through and through

[Sung together]
We gonna march together down the aisle today
We gonna see the preacher in the business way
Oh I'm so happy can't you see I'm thrilled with joy?

(Can't believe how this could happen to a country boy)

So come and take me by the hand (M)
Let me be your lovin' man (F)
I'm in a great big world (M)
My baby is a country girl (F)

I found my toy (M)
I'm a country boy (F)

Note: Freddy King and his wife Margaret Whitfield in a vocal duet. El-Bee Single # 157, 1957.
