​You Can't Take the Country Out of Me

This song is by Alabama and appears on the album American Pride (1992) and on the album Born Country (1997).

Well I was raised out in the country,
Just outside a real small town,
And just like any other young boy,
All my life I dreamed of getting out.

I've been down to the city,
It's a real nice place to see,
Well I got too much rebel in me,
I got to be somewhere where I can breathe.

You can take me out of the country,
Miles from where I want to be,
You can take me out of the country,
But you can't take the country out of me.

Hurry home to my woman,
Big blue eyes and long blond hair,
And we'll make love way until morning,
And tell the world I don't care.

You can take me out of the country,
Miles from where I want to be,
You can take me out of the country,
But you can't take the country out of me.

Take me out of the country,
Miles from where I want to be.
You can take me out of the country,
But you can't take the country out of me.

You can take me out of the country,
But you can't take the country out of me.
