Song of the Day #4,411: ‘Country Pie’ – Bob Dylan

The Random iTunes Fairy is in a Nashville Skyline mood. Just three weeks back, she served up the song ‘Peggy Day’ from Bob Dylan’s 1969 country-folk album. And today she’s back with another song from the same collection.

I don’t have much to say about this track, as I didn’t about ‘Peggy Day’ three weeks ago. This might be the Dylan album that invites the least dissection. It’s a simple, fun listen.

Now I will turn things over to frequent commenter Dana, who will most likely chime in to say he doesn’t like Dylan’s vocals on this album.

[Verse 1]
Just like old Saxophone Joe
When he’s got the hogshead up on his toe
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie

[Verse 2]
Listen to the fiddler play
When he’s playin’ ’til the break of day
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie

[Verse 3]
Raspberry, strawberry, lemon, and lime
What do I care?
Blueberry, apple, cherry, pumpkin, and plum
Call me for dinner, honey, I’ll be there

[Verse 4]
Saddle me up my big white goose
Tie me on her and turn her loose
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie

[Verse 5]
I don’t need much, that ain’t no lie
Ain’t runnin’ any race
Give to me my country pie
I won’t throw it up in anybody’s face

[Verse 6]
Shake me up that old peach tree
A’Little Jack Horner got nothin’ on me
Oh me, oh my
Love that country pie

    Clearly, the Random iTunes Fairy is testing me, but no need to comment further as you took the words right out of my mouth.😜
