G
I remember wearing straight legged Levi's
                                      C
flannel shirts even when they weren't in style
           G
I remember singin' with Roy Rogers 
                                C             C7 
at the movies when the west was really wild
      F                         Em
I was listenin to the Opry when all of my friends
             C                 C/B        Am   F
were diggin' rock and roll and rythem and blues
      Dm           G              C
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*
            G                           C
Oooh, I was country when country wasn't cool
      G                              C       C7
I was country from my hat down to my boots
F               Em
I still act and look the same 
        C         C/B     Am  F
what ya see ain't nothin' new
      Dm           G              C
I was country when country wasn't cool

     F                             Em
They called us country bumkins for stickin' to our roots
         C               C/B           Am                F
I'm just glad we're in a country where we're all free to choose
      Dm           G              C
I was country when country wasn't cool

*Chorus (w/ George Jones)

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 ya see ain't nothin' new
Cause I was country when country wasn't cool
Yeah, I was country when country wasn't cool
