George Jones – I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool lyrics

(Barbara)
I remember wearin' straight leg Levis and 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.

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 ---

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.

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

Yeah, I was Country when Country wasn't cool.
