Vern Gosdin – Mother Country Music Lyrics

When my mind is all aclutter from livin’ day to day
Your musics like a river I can gently float away
When I’m deep in disappointment and cannot face the night
Your music lifts me up and takes me closer to the light

Mother country music let your sad songs roll
You nurtured me in childhood you’re a haven for my soul
Mother country music let your guitars roll on
There’s a refuge for my troubles in your songs

You help me through the darkest night when I thought I was alone
And when I found a new love you gave me a love song
And when my heart is broken and everything goes wrong
It helps to ease my mind when I hear it in your song

Mother country music let your sad songs roll
You nurtured me in childhood you’re a haven for my soul
Mother country music let your guitars roll on
There’s a refuge for my troubles in your songs
Mother country music roll on
