  • I wouldn't exactly say that I'm a honky tonker
    But I've been know to haunt a hall or two
    I don't own a horse or wear a Stetson
    But a steel guitar paints this old heart a shade of Cowboy Blue

    Some folks say that ain't country
    Smile, let 'em in on the truth
    Don't rely on first impressions
    Country is what country means to you

    Where I come from it's a certain kind a livin'
    It's the love you give that makes you a man
    Country ain't some kind of accent
    Yes ma'am, we're Texans, we got us a fiddle in the band

    Some folks say that ain't country
    Smile, let 'em in on the truth
    Don't rely on first impressions
    Country is what country means to you (ah ha)

    Mi padre's from the desert out in Redford
    We drink a beer with salt and a lime
    And we serenade our señoritas
    Singing "Mañanitas" in 3/4 time

    Some folks say that ain't country (ah ha)
    Smile, let 'em in on the truth
    Don't rely on first impressions
    Country is what country means to you
    Don't rely on first impressions
    Country is what country means to you
    Country is what country means to you Writer/s: Cleto Cordero, P. Palomino
