Boy From The Country (Murphey Michael Martin)

Because he called the forest brother Because he called the earth his mother They drove him out into the rain And some people even said That the boy from the country was insane Because he spoke with fish in the creek He tried to tell us that the animals could speak And who knows, maybe they do Hey, how do you know they don't Just because they've never spoken to you Boy from the country Left his home when he was young Boy from the country He loves the sun He tried to tell us that we should love the land We just turned our heads and laughed You see we did not understand But you know sometimes I think The boy from the country Must be the only one who sees Because the boy from the country Doesn't want to see the forest He'd rather see the trees Boy from the country Left his home when he was young Boy from the country He loves the sun
