    Well you're not supposed to say the word "cancer", in a song.
    And tellin' folks Jesus is the answer, can rub 'em wrong.
    It ain't hip to sing about tractors, trucks,
    Little towns, or mama, yeah that might be true.
    But this is country music and we do

    Do you like to drink a cold one
    On the weekend and get a little loud?
    Do you wanna say I'm sorry or I love you
    But you don't know how?
    Do you wish somebody had the nerve
    To tell that stupid boss of yours
    To shove it, next time he yells at you
    Well this is country music and we do

    So turn it on, turn it up, and sing along
    This is real, this is your life in a song
    Yeah this is country music

    Are you haunted by the echo of your mother, on the phone
    Cryin' as she tells you that your brother is not coming home?
    And if there's anyone that still has pride and the memory of those
    That died defending the old red, white, and blue,
    This is country music and we do

    So turn it on, turn it up, and sing along
    This is real, this is your life in a song
    Just like a road that takes you home
    Yeah this is right where you belong
    This is country music

    This is country music
    He stopped lovin' her today
    (This is country music)
    Hello darlin'
    (This is country music)
    God bless the USA
    (This is country music)
    Amarillo by morning
    (This is country music)
    Stand by your man
    (This is country music)
    Momma tried
    (This is country music)
    Take me home
    (This is country music)
    I walk the line
    (This is country music)
    Country boy can survive
