Dime Store Cowgirl

Album: Pageant Material (2015)

  • I've had my picture made with Willie Nelson
    Stayed in a hotel with a pool
    Driven through New Mexico where the saguaro cactus grow
    And I felt really small under Mount Rushmore

    And I made it all the way past Austin city limits
    And maybe for a minute, I got too big for my britches, but

    I'm just a dime store cowgirl
    That's all I'm ever gonna be
    You can take me out of the country
    But you can't take the country out of me, no
    'Cause I'm still the girl from Golden
    Had to get away so I could grow
    But it don't matter where I'm goin'
    I'll still call my hometown home

    Slept in a room with the ghost of Gram Parsons
    Drank some wine I can't afford
    Went to San Antonio to the river walk and rodeo
    Seen the white cliffs of Dover from the shore

    And I kinda fell in love with a Palm Springs trailer park
    But those California stars could never steal my heart

    'Cause I'm just a dime store, a cowgirl
    That's all I'm ever gonna be
    You can take me out of the country
    But you can't take the country out of me, no
    'Cause I'm still the girl from Golden
    Had to get away so I could grow
    And it don't matter where I'm goin'
    I'll still call my hometown home

    I'm happy with what I got, 'cause what I got is all I need
    Just cause it don't cost a lot, don't cost a lot, don't mean it's cheap

    'Cause I'm just a dime store cowgirl
    That's all I'm ever gonna be
    You can take me out of the country
    But you can't take the country out of me, no
    'Cause I'm still the girl from Golden
    Had to get away so I could grow
    But it don't matter where I'm goin'
    I'll still call my hometown home

    I'll still call my hometown home Writer/s: KACEY MUSGRAVES, LUKE LAIRD, SHANE L MCANALLY
