about

Written 10/1998, recorded 07/2014. My wife and I had contemplated moving out of California, possibly to Idaho or Texas. In the end we stayed put and have been raising our kids here in Livermore, Ca. This song is about wondering what life might be like somewhere else besides here. Guitar: Fender 12 string, Cremona Upright Bass, Fender Mandolin.

lyrics

Well I’ve been living in between these city lines
drive that freeway twice a day, stare at the highway signs
There’s a whisper in the back of my mind, oh boy,
don’t you think it’s time?

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, my Miss Angelee
You’re my wife my love my life, my reason to believe
but it’s all houses and black top as far as I can see
Angelee, don’t you think its time we leave?

I been dreaming bout the country you know those dreams that get to you
Angelee it may sound funny but I think you feel it too
So lets head out to the heartland and do some dreamin in the country
do some dreamin in the country

Who knows what we’ll find the other end of this dotted line
and chasin dreams can leave you astray, sometimes
you gotta take that chance put your wheels in gear
So take me by the hand Angelee, lead me anywhere because

I been dreaming bout the country you know those dreams that get to you
Angelee it may sound funny but I think you feel it too
So lets head out to the heartland and do some dreamin in the country
do our dreamin in the country

I’m going where the grass is greener,
Well I’m sure the air smells sweeter
Lets do some dreaming in the country

Well I been dreaming bout the country you know those dreams that get to you
Angelee it may sound funny but I think you feel it too
So lets head out to the heartland and do some dreamin in the country
do some dreamin in the country

Do our dreamin in the country

about

Brett Allen Gregory Livermore, California

I've always been compelled to write.

Early on it was journaling and poetry, but then that merged with my guitar addiction to become songwriting.

The process was always a bit manic, pressured, as if a large gorilla had stepped into my room, grabbed me by the lapels and said, "I will not let you sleep until you write this idea down." And so for years the gorilla and I danced madly thru the night.
