"I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" lyrics

I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool

(With George Jones)

I remember wearing straight leg Levis
And flannel shirts
Even when they weren't in style
I remember singing with Roy Rogers
At the movies
When the West was really wild

And I was listening to the opry
When all of my friends
Were digging rock'n'roll
And rhythm'n'blues
I was country
When country wasn't cool

I remember circling the drive-in
Pulling up and turning down George Jones
I remember when no one was looking
I was putting peanuts in my Coke

I took a lot of kidding
Cause I never did fit in
Now look at everybody
Trying 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 nothing new
I was country
When country wasn't cool

They call us country bumpkins
For sticking 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

Yeah, I was country
Country when it wasn't cool
Yeah and I was country
From my hat down to, oh, my boots
I still act and look the same
What you see ain't nothing new
Cause I was country
When country wasn't cool
Yeah, I was country
When country wasn't cool
