Country Must Be Country Wide

Album: Modern Day Prodigal Son (2009)
Charted: 50
  • I grew up south of the Mason Dixon
    Workin,' spittin', huntin' and fishin'
    Stone cold country by the grace of God

    I was gasin' up the other day
    And an ol' boy pulled up with a license plate
    From Ohio I thought oh good Lord he's lost
    From his wranglers to his boots
    He reminded me of Chris LeDoux
    And that Copenhagen smile
    Country must be country wide

    In every state, there's a station
    Playin' Cash, Hank, Willie, and Waylon
    In foreign cars and four wheel drives

    There's cowboys and hillbillies
    From farm towns to big cities
    There ain't no doubt in my mind
    Country must be country wide

    It ain't where, it's how you live
    We weren't raised to take
    We were raised to give
    The shirt off our back
    To anyone in need

    We bow our heads before we eat
    Before we start our day
    Before we fall asleep
    Cause in God we trust and we believe

    And we see what's wrong
    And we know what's right
    And ol' Hank he said it all
    When he said country folks can survive

    In every state, there's a station,
    Playin' Cash, Hank, Willie, and Waylon
    In foreign cars and four wheel drives

    There's cowboys and hillbillies
    From farm towns to big cities
    There ain't no doubt in my mind
    Country must be country wide, yeah get on it dog

    In every state, there's a station, c'mon y'all better crank this up
    In every state, there's a station
    Playin' Cash, Hank, Willie, and Waylon
    In foreign cars and four wheel drives

    There's cowboys and hillbillies
    From farm towns to big cities
    There ain't no doubt in my mind, there ain't no doubt in my mind
