I remember hearing LeAnn Rimes
When she sang blue what sounded like Patsy Cline
And I remember that Ooh SheDaisy
But don't they sound a lot like Destiny's Child
Now Michael Bolton's on the Opry
And they've turned me down again
And man that really hurts me a lot
'Cause I was country when country wasn't pop

I remember "He Stopped Loving Her Today"
Back when radio would play George Jones
You never hear Family Tradition
Or all of those killer songs Bocephus wrote
And I ain't heard twin fiddlin' since I don't know when
Now it's more like Britney Spears than it is Loretter Lynn
I was country when country wasn't pop

Yeah I was country when country wasn't pop
Yeah I was country way before Kid Rock
Now every act sounds the same
This crossin over's got to stop
Yeah... I was country when country wasn't pop

Well they sound like Smashing Pupmkins
In a pair of cowboy boots
They's about as country as Huey Lewis and the News
I was country when country wasn't pop
Yeah... I was country when country when country wasn't pop
I was country and I'm still proud of David Baugh

It's a shame
Shania Twain
Is mixin Rock and roll and funky hip hop
'Cause I was country when country wasn't pop
Here... I was country when Barbara Mandrell was really hot
