Country Revival

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the compilation album The Very Best of Slim Dusty (1998).

They say, "Our music's having a revival."
They say, "That country's on the climb;"
But I say, "What the hell are they talkin' about,
The country has been here all the time."

There's a lot more people now admitting
They like country music after all
Now there's dollar signs along side country music
It's cowboy boots and hats for one and all.

They say that country's middle of the road now
They say they've had enough of all this noise
I suppose the music wheel has turned full circle
Our ballads and our stories now enjoyed.

They say, "Our music's having a revival."
They say, "That country's on the climb;"
But I say, "What the hell are they talkin' about,
The country has been here all the time."

When rock 'n' roll came out and just took over,
A lot of music just went underground,
Then somehow rock got tangled up with country,
'Cause country music added to the sound.

Oh they're singing songs they've only just discovered,
Just hear them talk about their brand new sounds,
But there's nothing new about the songs we're singing,
It's just that country music's come to town.

They say, "Our music's having a revival."
They say, "That country's on the climb."
But I say, "What the hell are they talking about
The country has been here all the time, sure it has
The country has been here all the time."
