This is God's Country

I don't want to retire in the city.
City life holds nothing for me.
It's green fields and country roads
And a carpet of flowers for me.

It's rainbows and blue skies
and a family and friends to love.
I will take all that comes with it
from heaven above.

The city is so cold and lonely,
Sad now the way things are.
People walk past with glaring faces
And hate flashing in their minds.

The country is quiet and peaceful now
With friends not far away.
So give me the country landscape and skies
And a peaceful heart with love that binds.

Life is not always sunshine and happiness
But with God's grace and love
And prayers from above
The country life will satisfy me.
