What a sad state of affairs I'm in
'Cause I'm tryin' to compete where I just don't fit in
'Cause the country, if you call it that, from off the Row
Ain't country just because I'm old enough to know that

That ain't country
That's a natural fact
It's full of tales of good times and happy endings
My life ain't like that
So I'll keep listenin' to the old songs
That my grandad used to play
Full of pain and heartache and desperation
And the ones that got away
The ones that speak to me
The way I feel today

So tell me, whatever happened to the country songs
Full of truth and consequences, all the things gone wrong
Someone came and changed it up, made it all a lie
I'd like to spit a little beach-nut right in that dude's eye, 'cause

That ain't country
That's a natural fact
It's full of tales of good times and happy endings
My life ain't like that
So I'll keep listenin' to the old songs
That my grandad used to play
Full of pain and heartache and desperation
And the ones that got away
The ones that speak to me
Tthe way I feel today

Spoken:
Now listen here

We got Waylon singin' songs about a Ramblin' Man
And Junior's got a cold one in his hand
And the Possum's gettin' drunk again, imagine that
And Charlie Daniels playin' fiddle underneath that hat
And John and June are goin' back and forth again
And David Allan Coe is singin' 'bout his kin
And Haggard sings the songs that'll save your soul
And Willie sings the songs about the hearts he stole, 'cause

That shit's country
That's a natural fact
It's full of tales of hard times and complications
Ain't life like that?
So I'll keep listenin' to the old songs
That my grandad used to play
Full of pain and heartache and desperation
And the ones that got away
The ones that speak to me
The way I feel today
The ones that speak to me
The way I feel today
