    Are you ready for the country? Because it's time to mow.

      name your price

     

about

You are on a farm. There is a girl.

lyrics

summer rye
waving in the breeze
squirrels in the trees
a dirty rag
soaked in gasoline
an old harvesting machine

and I won't say your name
and I don't wanna dance
I don't wanna give my heart the chance

a harmless dog
with three good eyes
baby, tell me lies
red is the color
of my new pickup truck
do you give a fuck?

and I won't say your name
and I don't wanna dance
I don't wanna give my heart the chance

the cigarettes are cheap
and the liquor is free
darling, what about me?
will you lay around
in my father's field?
will you be revealed?
