CANNED HEAT!! oh yeah baby.......I'm "Going Up The Country"

I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away

(those floating cities are looking mighty tempting right about now)


I'm sweatin' my arse off big time here on the East Coast

I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away


All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can't stay

Just exactly where we're going I cannot say,
but........


We might even

leave the USA ......
'Cause there's a brand new game that I want to play.



can't take it anymore

Kids......

This Taxi Service is takin' us outta here today!








Canned Heat - Going Up The Country (Woodstock 1969)



gotta get goooo-ing
gotta get goooo-ing
gotta get goooo-ing
well I'm going



I can't stay here long...

now

cause I'm tired of the way

I've been dogged around

well I've got to roam and find me

a brand new....


ONE MORE TIME.....
(rare colour clip)


I'm going up the country, babe don't you wanna go
I'm going up the country, babe don't you wanna go
I'm going to some place where I've never been before
I'm going, I'm going where the water tastes like wine
Well I'm going where the water tastes like wine
We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time
I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away
I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away
All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can't stay
Now baby, pack your leaving trunk, you know we've got to leave today
Just exactly where we're going I cannot say, but We might even leave
the USA 'Cause there's a brand new game that I want to play
No use of you running, or screaming and crying
'Cause you've got a home as long as I've got mine
