I Wanna Go To Town

By Mike Benish

Verse1
Now I'm a country kid, I've been put to work
I'm drivin tractor playin in the dirt
hundred acres that I'm under cuttin on
take me all day, just to get er done

Water jug, bologna sandwich
And that's all I need to manage
I aint slowin or stoppin for nothin
Throttle up keep the diesel pumpin

Chorus
And I got all day long to think where I'd rather be
Than on this tractor seat
And I keep waitin for the sun to run across the summer sky
And change into the night, don't you realize
I'm just a country kid I wanna go to town
I wanna shut down this old John Deere
I'm tired of goin round, bouncin up and down
Hey I aint complainin, I'm just sayin,
I wanna go to town.

Verse 2
I'm pullin seven botton sweeps
Chicken pickers with a green machine
Slow Goin with my big John Deere
Wish I could put it in road gear

All kinds of little critters
Run scared when I get near em
Chicken Hawk circlin above
Got himself a rabbit and he's got him on the run
Chorus

Bridge
I wanna lay a little rubber on a red brick main street
Hope that the local cop don't catch me

Chorus
And I've got all day long to think where I'd rather be
Than on this tractor seat
I know every song that's on the radio
I've heard em all you know, and I wanna go
I'm just a country kid I wanna go to town
I wanna shut down this ol John Deer
I'm just a country kid I wanna go to town
I wanna shut down this ol John Deer
