"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.


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