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 (This is country music)

It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
