"Country Conscience" as written by and Keith/murrah Stegall....
I came in here tonight
To do a little thinking
When I left home, I promised her twice
I ain't going drinking

Then you walk in
And knock me down
We could slip away, but in a few days
It'll be all over town

But my country conscience will tell on me
The roots of my raising-run too deep
Sometimes temptation can make a strong man weak
But my country conscience won't let me cheat

I started to leave
Then I hesitated
I looked in her eyes
And I was almost persuaded

Then she took my hand
But when she touched my ring
A voice in my head, spoke up and said
"Son, you're doing the wrong thing"

But my country conscience will tell on me
The roots of my raising-run too deep
Sometimes temptation can make a strong man week
But my country conscience won't let me cheat
My country conscience won't let me cheat
