About Walk In The Country
Bart Howard is mostly known for his song “Fly Me To The Moon”, which Tony Bennett first recorded in 1965 for the If I Ruled The World album. “Walk in the Country” is a sweet, introspective ballad.

Lyrics

I took a walk in the country
To concentrate on you.
I took a walk in the country
To recapture an old dream or two.

From high on a hill
I gazed on the scene below
And wondered if I would know
Another day like long ago.

When we strolled along through the meadow
Too much in love for words
We startled a lark
And you said oh my heart has wings just like the bird’s.
And there on the hill
That day as I gaze below
A lark flew to me and so
I went on my way in the country
Feeling at ease
And my heart was as light as the lark whistling in the trees.

And there on the hill
That day as I gazed below
A lark flew to me and so
I went on my way through the country
Feeling at ease
And my heart was a light as the larks whistling in the trees.
