A
Gotta get goin'
(A)
And I can't stay alone now
        D
Cuz I'm tired of the way
                    A
I've been dragged around
       E
Well I gotta get goin baby
                    A
Find me a brand new home

[VERSES]
I'm goin up the country
Baby don't you want to go?
I'm goin up the country
Baby don't you want to go?
I'm goin' to someplace where
I've never been before

Well I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine
Well I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine
You can jump in the water and stay drunk all the time

[VERSE 3]
I'm gonna leave the city, got to get away
I'm gonna leave the city, got to get away
All this fussin and fightin man you know I sure can't stay

Hey baby packin up the truck
You know we've got to leave today
Just exactly where were goin I cannot say but
We might even leave the USA
Well its a brand new game that I don't wanna play

[BRIDGE]
D
No use of you running
                A
Or screaming and crying
                 E
But you've got a home man
                 A
I guess I've got mine

Some of the lyrics are wrong but the flute part is perfect.

great tab, really. But like i said in past tabs, please put the chords that are introduced and used throughout, because there might be beginners liek me who can't get a guitar teacher. btw, great tab again. :]
