Paul McCartney – Heart Of The Country (1971)

Scroll down to content

“Heart of the Country” is a song written by Paul and Linda McCartney from their album Ram released in 1971. The song has simple acoustic tune with a heavy bass chorus, and an unusually mellow sound to the acoustic guitar that was achieved by tuning all of the strings a full step lower than standard pitch. The topic is as simple as the title, a man searching for a farm in the middle of nowhere. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic described the song as “an effortless folk-pop tune that ranks among [McCartney’s] very best songs.” “Heart Of The Country” appears on the forthcoming Deluxe re-issue of RAM.
