John Frank proclaimed:
Did you fall in love with a country girl?
Since I seem to be controversial, here's another controversial opinion: "Country Girl" is my favorite Iommi riff.
Well, that's insane, but I love Country Girl. Not clear why it gets a bad rap. Sure, the lyrics are not about the dark of the day or dreaming, but the song still rules.
Compared to the rest of their Dio-era stuff, Country Girl's an outlier. It's a solid song with a great hook, but the imagery is jarring. Had he mentioned that she was a one night stand, or that her name was Wendy, it might have received more love, or at least some understanding.

We've all been there.
