"Country Dreamer" is the B-side song to the single "Helen Wheels" released by Paul McCartney and Wings on 26 October 1973 in the UK and 12 November 1973 in the US.[1] It was recorded in October 1972, and its country ambiance is similar to "Heart of the Country" from Paul McCartney's 1971 album Ram.

Release[edit]

The song was originally intended to be on Red Rose Speedway when it was to be a double album. It appears as a bonus track on the 1988 CD release of Red Rose Speedway[2] and on the 1993 CD release of Band on the Run[3] included in The Paul McCartney Collection.
