Gone Country Lyrics

She's been playin' in a room on the strip, for ten years in Vegas
Every night she looks in the mirror, and she only ages
She's been readin' 'bout Nashville on the records, that everybody's buyin'
Says, "I'm a simple girl myself, grew up on Long Island"
So she packs her bags, to try her hand, says, "This might be, my last chance"

She's gone country, look at 'dem boots, she's gone country, back to her roots
She's gone country, a new kinda suit, she's gone country, here she comes

Well the folk seems dead, but he's holdin' out in the village
He's been writing songs, speakin' out against wealth and privilege
He says, "I don't believe in money, but a man can make him a killin'"
Cause, some of that stuff don't sound much different then Dylan
I hear down there, it's changed you see, they're not as backward as they used to be

She's gone country, look at 'dem boots, she's gone country, back to her roots
She's gone country, a new kinda suit, she's gone country, here she comes

He commutes to L.A. but he's gotta house in the valley
But the bills are pilin' up, and the crop scene just ain't on the rally
He says, "Honey I'm a serious compose, good in voice and composition"
With the crime and the smog these days, this ain't no place for children
Lord it sounds so easy, it shouldn't take long
He'll be back in the money, in no time at all

Yaah, he's gone country, a new kind of walk, he's gone country
A new kinda of talk, he's gone country look at 'dem boots
He's gone country, Oh, back to his roots he's gone country
He's gone country, everybody's gone country
Yeah, we've gone country - The whole world's gone country, we gone

When Alan Jackson was told by producers that for his 1994 performance on the ACMA's he'd have to sing along with a backing track ... in protest he told his drummer, don't use any sticks. Thanks for stopping by this Gone Country chords and lyrics page.
