"Down Home Girl" as written by Jerry Leiber and Artie Butler....
Well I swear your perfume babe is made out of turnip greens
Every time I kiss you girl it tastes like pork and beans
Even though you're wearing those uptown high heels
I can tell from your giant step you've been walking through the cotton fields

Ohhhhh you're sooooo down home girl

Every time you monkey child takes my breath away
Well every time you move like that girl I got to get down and pray
Girl you know that dress you're wearing is made out of fiber glass
Every time you move like that girl I got to go to Sunday Mass

Ohhhhh you're sooooo down home girl

I'm gonna to take you to the muddy river and push you in
So I can watch the water roll on down your velvet skin
I'm gonna take you down to New Orleans down in Dixie land
So I can watch you do the second line with an umbrella in your hand

Ohhhhh you're sooooo down home girl

    General CommentIt seems to me the simplest meaning to this song would be that it is about a woman who is pretending to be more "sophisticated" than she really is, or more than was raised to be. The man singing is aware of this, and is obviously really attracted to her regardless.

    General CommentI think every country girl's felt like this before. And hoping a guy will see right through it.
