I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool
I remember wearin' straight leg Levis
Flannel shirts Even when they weren't in style
I remember singin' with Roy Rogers
at the movies when the West was really wild

And I was listenin' to the Opry
When all of my friends
Were diggin' Rock 'n Roll and Rhythm and Blues
I was Country, when Country wasn't cool

I remember circlin' the drive-in
Pullin' up and turnin' down George Jones
I remember when no one was lookin'
I was puttin' peanuts in my Coke

I took a lot of kiddin'
'Cause I never did fit in
Now look at everybody
Tryin' to be what I was then

I was country, when country wasn't cool
Oooh

I was country, when country wasn't cool
I was country, from my hat down to my boots
I still act, and look the same
What you see ain't nothin' new

I was country, when country wasn't cool

They call us country bumpkins
For stickin' to our roots
I'm just glad we're in a country
Where we're all free to choose

I was country, when country wasn't cool

Hey, I was country, when country wasn't cool
Yeah, I was country, from my hat down to, whoa my boots
I still act, and look the same
What you see ain't nothin' new

Yeah, I was country when country wasn't cool
