Country Is Me

Country is me - I now live on the NSW Coast and although a semi rural area I stand out as a bushy amongst the local surfies. Eve and I both had wonderful relationships with our grandparents, both were country people and their values, their stories, their ways of life have had a huge influence on our own way of life. These country values we hope to encourage in our own children. As for Country music, I love it all, fast, slow, in between, it tells a story and will always have a purpose.

Country Is Me
Music and Lyrics by Rod Esam

Country Music is lives and times
Of many a man and woman gone by
Their thoughts, their feelings, sorrow and laughter
Captured and recorded from now till here after.

Chorus:
Country music is here to stay
It's never ever going to go away
From the great inland deserts to the wide open seas
This music is country and country is me.

There is an old man with life worn hands
Wry old smile and furrowed brow
If I can just teach this young child that I hold
The meanings of all the stories he told

Chorus:
Country music is here to stay
It's never ever going to go away
From the great inland deserts to the wide open seas
This music is country and country is me.

For many a year we'll all sing our songs
Of the bush and the wildlife and the people we love
And I'll sing this music by and by
Right up until yeah the day that I die.

Chorus:
Country music is here to stay
It's never ever going to go away
From the great inland deserts to the wide open seas
This music is country and country is me.
This music is country and country is me
