Country In My Genes

Written by Larry Cordle, Betty Key, Larry Shell

[VERSE 1]
Well they say that I'm too country the way I look and sound
They wanna to make me over just a little more uptown
Say I need to change my image now tell me what that means
Don't they know I've got country in my genes


[VERSE 2]
Well I can't help the way I talk I wouldn't change it if I could
Sophisticated ain't my style but country fits me good
I ain't ashamed to wear what's been handed down to me
Oh Lord, I've got country in my genes

[Chorus]
I've got country in my genes, country in my blood
It goes back generations it's something I'm proud of
It's something I was born with, what you get is what you see
I'm just an old hilly-billy with a bluegrass song to sing
Oh Lord, I've got country in my genes

[VERSE 3]
If country's hit the big time me I'm still the same
I ain't above my raisin' and I ain't about to change
I wouldn't trade my Wranglers for the finest gabardine
Oh Lord, I've got country in my genes

[Chorus]
Oh, Lord I've got country in my genes
