“Christmas In The Country” Lyric Video

“Christmas In The Country” Lyrics

Man, I sure do love this time of year
Snow starts covering up the old John Deere
Old school lights hanging off the roof
Front porch mistletoe kissing booth
Cup filled up with some feel-good Christmas cheer
‘Round here

We got snowflakes falling on an old two lane
Red-bow wreaths on a window pane
Just sitting ’round the fire with the ones who love me
Miles from a city and the crazy crowds
Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)

Upright piano in the living room
Singing ‘Silent Night’ just a little out of tune
Christmas Vacation on the TV screen
Wise man missing from the manger scene
Kids can’t sleep ’cause Santa’s coming soon, yeah real soon

We got snowflakes falling on an old two lane
Red-bow wreaths on a window pane
Just sitting ’round the fire with the ones who love me
Miles from a city and the crazy crowds
Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)

We got a tree, goes up to the ceiling
Chop up the wood and go get the candles
Sled down the hill, we’ll get the 4-wheeler
And take you back up to the top
You could be 10 miles away
And see my house from the road
Man, we got it all decked out
Lord, I can’t wait to go home

And see snowflakes falling on an old two lane
Front-yard Santa with a reindeer sleigh
Just sitting ’round the fire with the ones who love me
Miles from a city and the crazy crowds
Where the pine trees grow and the world slows down
Way out here, yeah, man I sure feel lucky
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)
Doing Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)
Christmas in the country (Do-do, do-do, do-do)

“Christmas is hands-down my favorite time of year,” the singer-songwriter shares. “We have so many Christmas traditions in our family that include a lot of festive music, but I’ve never recorded anything myself. Lauren has wanted me to make some Christmas music for a long time, so this year felt like the right time to finally take a stab at writing something and to put my own twist on one of the all-time classics.”

On top of his original Christmas song, Rhett also recorded his own rendition of the classic “The Christmas Song.”
