I love this song. A song about the angst of modern living and the ways in which we try to escape it. It sort of explores the same themes of A Day in the Life, but now the author is older and perhaps a bit more resigned to the mundaneness of everyday life. This song is somewhat humorous and even upbeat but it is aslo tinged with an aura of sadness. Ultimately it is a song about coping with reality rather than finding a true escape from it.

Great advice actually!
You and I, country dreamer
when there's nothing else to do
Me oh my, country dreamer
make a country dream come true
