"I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" as written by Rhonda Kye Fleming and Dennis W. Morgan....
I remember wearing straight-legged Levi's
Flannel shirts even when they weren't in style
I remember singing with Roy Rogers at the movies
When the west was really wild
I was listening to the Opry when all my friends
Were diggin' rock & roll and rhythm and blues
I was country when country wasn't cool

I remember circlin' the drive-in
Pullin' up and turning down George Jones
I remember when no one was looking
I was putting peanuts in my Coke
I took a lot of kiddin' 'cause I never did fit in
Now look at everybody trying to be what I was then
I was country when country wasn't cool

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 nothing new
I was country when country wasn't cool

They called 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

(George Jones)
I was country when country wasn't cool
I was country from my hat down to my boots

(Both)
I still act and look the same
What you see ain't nothing new
'Cause I was country when country wasn't cool
Yeah, I was country when country wasn't cool
