tony bennett – country girl testo

attendere prego...

country girl, country girl
i beheld her in meadowland
bowing and reaping and singing a refrain
oh, what a melancholy strain
the valley echoed with a ring
no nightingale could ever sing
so plaintively as the country girl

i was spellbound and curious
why such a sad song?
perhaps love p-ssed her by
no hopeful rainbow in the sky
maybe she held a memory dear
a happiness of yesteryear
in solitude cried the country girl

came the hour to travel on
sadness befell me
a sorrow filled my heart
a longing never to depart
the music in my soul i bore
long after it was heard no more
and memories of a country girl
whose love i’ll never know
