Into the Heart of the Country

I cannot pull myself away from Macca. Ram was actually one of my favorite albums due to it's availability to me after his earlier group broke up.  One of my favorite songs then and now was "Heart of the Country." Paul assumes a slight faux country American accent. Paul plays around throughout this album. I think he was sort of following a path towards freedom of expression. At the time,  I did not understand that this kind of song was a stretch for a lad from the UK.

....still holds up beautifully.

The bass beat... so backwoods. Nice.
