I was raised in the country, that's a natural fact
Food on the table from the garden out back
Everyone working to make the land their own
Red clay cracking where the silver queen grows

Running with your cousins from yard to yard
The living was easy but the playing was hard
Didn't have much, nothing comes for free
All you needed was your family

I am a country girl
I've been around the world
And every place I've been
Ain't nothing quite like
Living in the south
Oh honey shut your mouth
I am a country girl
I am a country girl

Biscuits in the morning and gravy too
Fried chicken in the afternoon
Jaw dragging, eating sweet potato pie
Taking half an hour to say goodbye

Blackberry patches, scuppernong vines
Sweet Georgia peaches and dandelion wine
The best kind of food is made by hand
The only place to get it is from the land

I am a country girl
I've been around the world
And every place I've been
Ain't got nothing like
Living in the south
Oh honey shut your mouth
I am a country girl
I am a country girl

All day, I dream about a place in the sun
Kinda like where I'm from
With the tall grass blowing in the breeze
Running barefoot 'round the tall oak trees

All day, I dream about a place I've been
A place where the skin I'm in
Feels like it's supposed to be
And anyone around who looks at me says

I am a country girl
I've been around the world
And every place I've been
Ain't quite nothing like
Living in the south
Oh honey shut your mouth
I am a country girl
I am a country girl

Living in the south
Oh honey shut your mouth

I was born in the country, that's a natural fact
On these long city days, I want to look back
To see tobacco fields, a row after row
Red clay cracking where the silver queen grows
