  • You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?
    Why not me?
    Well, you've finally come down to your old hometown
    Your Kentucky girl's been waiting patiently
    Why not me?

    Why not me on a rainy day?
    Why not me to love your cares away?
    Why not me?
    Why not me when the nights get cold?
    Why not me when you're growin' old?
    Why not me?

    You've been searchin' from here to Singapore
    Ain't it time that you notice the girl next door, baby
    Why not me?
    Oh, you had to see if the world was round
    It's time that you learned how good settlin' down could be
    Why not me?

    Why not me on a rainy day?
    Why not me to love your cares away?
    Why not me?
    Why not me when the nights get cold?
    Why not me when you're growin' old?
    Why not me?

    You've been lookin' for love all around the world
    Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?
    Why not me?
    Why not me?
    Baby, Why not me?
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)

    Oh, baby, why not me?
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)

    Oh, baby, why not me?
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)
    (La la la la, la la, la la la)

    Oh, baby, why not me?
    (La la la la, la la, la la la) Writer/s: Brent Maher, Harlan Howard, Sonny Throckmorton
