Barbara Mandrell – I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool lyrics

I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool
I remember wearin' straight leg Levis
Flannel shirts even when they weren't in style
I remember singing with Roy Rogers
At the movies when the west was really wild
And I was listening to the Opry
When all of my friends
Were digging Rock n Roll and Rhythm and Blues
I was country when country wasn't cool
I remember circling the drive-in
Pullin' up and turnin' down George Jones
I remember when no one was looking
I was putting 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
Oh, 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 nothing new
I was Country when Country wasn't cool
They call us country bumpkins
For sticking to our roots
I'm just glad we're in a country
Where we're all free to choose
I was Country when County wasn't cool
Hey, I was Country when Country wasn't cool
Yeah, and I was Country from my hat down to oh, my boots
I still act and look the same
What you see ain't nothing new
I was Country when Country wasn't cool
Yeah, I was country when Country wasn't cool
