Going Up the Country – Canned Heat (1968)

1) I’m going up the country,
baby, don’t you wanna go
I’m going up the country,
baby, don’t you wanna go
I’m going to some place
where I’ve never been before

2) I’m going, I’m going
where the water tastes like wine
I’m going where the
water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water,
stay drunk all the time

3) I’m gonna leave this city,
got to get away
I’m gonna leave this city,
got to get away
All this fussing and fighting, man,
you know I sure can’t stay

4) Now, Baby, pack your leaving trunk,
you know we got to leave today
Just exactly where we go, I can not say
We might even leave the U.S.A.
‘Cause it’s a brand new game,
and I do want to play.
No use of you running,
or screaming and crying.
‘Cause you’ve got a home as-
long as I’ve got mine.
