  • Right outside of this one church town
    There's a gold dirt road to a whole lot of nothin'
    Got a deed to the land, but it ain't my ground
    This is God's country
    We pray for rain, and thank Him when it's fallen
    'Cause it brings a grain and a little bit of money
    We put it back in the plate
    I guess that's why they call it God's country

    I saw the light in the sunrise
    Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
    Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine
    With the dogs runnin'
    Saved by the sound of the been found
    Dixie whistled in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound
    The Devil went down to Georgia, but he didn't stick around
    This is God's country

    We turned the dirt and worked until the week's done
    We take a break and break bread on Sunday
    And then do it all again
    'Cause we're proud to be from God's country (Yeah, yeah)

    I saw the light in the sunrise
    Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
    Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine
    With the dogs runnin'
    Saved by the sound of the been found
    Dixie whistled in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound
    The Devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around
    This is God's country (Yeah)

    (This is God's country)
    (This is God's country)
    God's country

    I don't care what my headstone reads
    Or what kind of pine wood box I end up in
    When it's my time, lay me six feet deep
    In God's country (Yeah, yeah)

    I saw the light in the sunrise
    Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
    Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine
    With the dogs runnin'
    Saved by the sound of the been found
    Dixie whistled in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound
    The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around
    This is God's country (God's country)
    Yeah, I saw the light in the sunrise
    Sittin' back in the 40 on the muddy riverside
    Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine
    With the dogs runnin'
    Saved by the sound of the been found
    Dixie whistled in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound
    The Devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around
