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 & 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.

Ooh, 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, an' I was Country, from my hat down to, oh, my boots.
I still act and look the same:
What you see ain't nothin' new.
I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Yeah, I was Country when Country wasn't cool.

Lyrics by Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan.
Recorded by George Jones and Barbara Mandrell.
