A Country Girl in Paris Lyrics John Denver


John Denver - A Country Girl in Paris Songtext

A country girl in Paris, Moonlight on the Seine. Memories of Tennessee and Nashville in the rain.
It's such a contradiction; a heart that's filled with pain.

A country girl in Paris dreamin' Nashville in the rain. She walks along the boulevard Champs-Elysees,

Thinks about a country boy three thousand miles away. Pride is such a hard thing, such a price to pay,To be all alone in Paris, with true love so far away.

Up upon Montmarte where she stops to rest a while
All the artists look at her and they long to paint her smile.
For even in her sorrow there's something in the eyes That makes the young men jealous and makes the old men sigh.

They say the loss of innocence is always linked to pain,
For once the heart is opened, nothing ever is the same. So the evening lends itself to lovers and romance.

The way to heal a broken heart: give true love just one more chance.
