I'm Just A Country Boy At Heart (1937)

The Consul looked up; the man, Weber, was singing. "I'm just a country b-hoy. I don't know a damn thing." Under The Volcano

Chris Ackerely in his Notes on Under The Volcano suggests one possible source for Weber's song:

"I'm Just a Country boy at heart," by "Pinky" Tomlin, Connie Lee, and Paul Parks, featured in the 1937 Melody Pictures musical film, Sing While You're Able:

I've seen the moon rise over Broadway,
I've felt enchantment from the start,
Yet I keep thinking of a harvest moon:
I guess I'm just a Country Boy at heart.
