"COUNTRY GIRL" er Svein Finjarns bidrag på "Close Up" til den på midten av 1970-tallet så populære country-rock-stilen. Mye interessante gitarganger og koring hever denne betraktelig og "COUNTRY GIRL" var lenge blant Sveins mest populære NJS-bidrag. Akustiske instrumenter og en sterk melodilinje gjør dette til et solid spor.

Country Girl

(Svein Finjarn)

In the desert, with this burnin' sand blowin' in my face

I keep on movin' to my little girl out west

All the way from Louisianna, it's a long long way

That's where she's gonna be, her letter told me

 

I keep my head up in the saddle from the morning dew

Keep on movin', so I travel fast without no rest

All the way from Louisianna, it's a long long way

That's where she's gonna be, her letter told me

 

Country girl

You're the only one that keeps me hanging on

Country girl

So I keep on ridin' in this burnin' sun

Yes I'll be there tonight

My country girl

My country girl

 

My boots are dusty

And my horse is so thirsty

But we'll stick together and ride on
