Country In My Genes
Well, they say that I'm too country, the way I look and sound.
They wanna to make me over, just a little more uptown.
Say I need to change my image, now tell me what's that mean.
Don't they know I've got country in my genes?
Well, I can't help the way I talk, I wouldn't change it if I could.
Sophisticated ain't my style, but country fits me good.
I ain't ashamed to wear what's been handed down to me.
Lord, I've got country in my genes.
Don't Open That Door
Oh, I hear familiar sounds down the sidewalk
Gettin' closer with every step he takes
Lord, I'm so afraid that if I look out the window
I'll be tempted to repeat an old mistake
Don't open that door to an old memory
When he said goodbye, I locked it up tight
And threw out the key, I've stood here before
Lord I can't stand no more, won't go there again
Heart don't let him in, don't open that door
Well I was born in old Kentucky
In them hills where folks are lucky
From a coal miner's daughter right to a coal miner's wife
Well the mountain folks love the mountains
White lightning flowed like the fountains
On a Sunday morning you can hear all the good folks singin
It's God's country in these hills he walks
There's two suitcases hid back in the closet
Packed for much more than a few days stay
And in her purse there's several thousand dollars
Years of saving for one rainy day
It scares her half to death to think of leaving
She's never been out on her own before
Too many nights she's cried while he was sleepin'
Oh but she's not sure he loves her any more
I Can't Hear The Music
He showed me there was more to me
When I thought I had nothing else to give
God knows he wasn't perfect,
Ah but then, again, nobody is
He always told me the truth
No matter how hard it was to hear
When he said "I believe in you"
It was music to my ears
Somewhere Someone's Falling In Love
Well, I got time on my hands, I got you on my mind
And the moon and the stars up above
There's a warm summer breeze blowing down through the trees
And somewhere someone's falling in love
If this world where we live is the only one we have
Then there's only one thing I'm thinking of
Let's go for that ride, keep your eyes open wide
'Cause somewhere someone's falling in love
Working girl, working girl
I love you working girl
And all the things that you do
Oh I don't know what I would do
If you should up and leave
Just sit and grieve
Sit and grieve working girl
Working man you've got money all the time
