    Lyrics

    I remember wearin' straight leg Levis
    Flannel shirts Even when they weren't in style
    I remember singin' with Roy Rogers
    at the movies when the West was really wild

    And I was listenin' to the Opry
    When all of my friends
    were diggin' Rock 'n Roll and Rhythm & Blues
    I was Country, when Country wasn't cool

    I remember circlin' the drive-in,
    pullin' up and turnin' down George Jones
    I remember when no one was lookin'
    I was puttin' peanuts in my Coke

    I took a lot of kiddin'
    'Cause I never did fit in
    now look at everybody
    tryin' to be what I was then

    I was Country, when Country wasn't cool
    Oooh

    (Chorus:)
    I was Country, when Country wasn't cool
    I was Country, from my hat down to my boots
    I still act, and look the same
    What you see ain't nothin' new

    I was Country, when Country wasn't cool

    (Instrumental Break)

    They call us country bumpkins
    For stickin' to our roots
    I'm just glad we're in a country
    Where we're all free to choose

    I was Country, when Country wasn't cool

    (George Jones)
    Hey I was Country, when Country wasn't cool
    Yeah I was country, from my hat down to, Whoa my boots
    I still act, and look the same
    What you see ain't nothin' new

    Yeah, I was Country when Country wasn't cool
