I came in here tonight
To do a little thinking
When I left home-I promised her twice,
"I ain't going drinking"
Then you walk in and knock me down
We could slip away, but in a few days
It'll be all over town ('cause)

Chorus:
But my country conscience will tell on me
The roots of my raising-run too deep
Sometimes temptation can make a strong man week
But my country conscience won't let her cheat

I started to leave
Then I hesitated
I looked in her eyes
And I was "almost persuaded"
Then she took my hand-but when she touched my ring
A voice in my head, spoke up and said,
"Son you're doing the wrong thing"

(Chorus)
My country conscience won't let me cheat
