Going Up to the Country

Taj Mahal

From The Real Thing, by Taj Mahal, as aptly named album as you’re likely to find.
The exuberance in the harmonica playing and vocals will grab you.
“I’m going to move up to the country and paint my mailbox blue…
I’m leaving LA baby, Mama don’t you know that smog has got me down…
Come here baby, Mama let Daddy take you by the hand.
If you’ll be my woman, I’ll be your city born country man!”
Also not to be missed: “Big Kneed Gal”:
“She’s my baby, she’s my sweetie, she’s my lover, she’s my pal. Now you know I’m just c-r-a-z-y about that woman. She’s my big-kneed gal.”
