This is my first submit so go easy haha! Would very much appreciate feedback:

Sometimes i play this one with Capo I, sometimes norm, let me know what you think!

C                                   G
I grew up poor and ragged, just a simple country girl. 
D                                  G
I wanted to be pretty more than anything in the world, 
C                    G     
like Barbie or the models in the Fredricks' catalog. 
D                                G
From rags to wishes in my dreams I could have it all. 

C                      G               D                 G  
I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair. 
C                     G               D                  G
Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there. 
C                      G          D            G
Don't let these false eyelashes lead you to believe that 
C                    G          D               G
I'm as shallow as I look 'cause I run true and deep.
 
C                                 G
I've always been misunderstood because of how I look. 
D                                   G
Don't judge me by the cover 'cause I'm a real good book. 
C                                   G  
So read into it what you will, but see me as I am. 
D                                        G
The way I look is just a country girl's idea of glam. 

C                      G            D             G
I'm just a backwoods Barbie in a push-up bra and heels. 
C                   G          D                  G
I might look artificial, but where it counts I'm real. 
C                          G             D                 G
And I'm all dolled up and hopin' for a chance to prove my worth, 
C                     G       D                 G
And even backwoods Barbie's get their feelings hurt. 


C                      G                D               G
I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair. 
C                            G         D                G
Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there. 
     C               G              D                  G
Yes, I can see where I could be misjudged upon first glance; 
   C                  G        D                G
But even backwoods Barbie's deserve a second chance. 
C                      G         D             G
I'm just a backwoods Barbie just asking for a chance, 
C                   G             D       G
just a backwoods Barbie
