Just got the news today
The record I sent 'em, they threw it away
Don't fit the format, don't make the list
They say I'm too old, won't even be missed

It happened to Jones, and even the Hag
Waylon and Willie, and the great Johnny Cash
Kicked 'em right out without even a word
But that ain't the end of the story I heard

'Cause Cash stomped out the footlights
And Haggard plum had a ball
And Willie and Waylon and Kris toured the nation
And Jones never showed up at all

They lived what they wrote
And they wrote what they sang
And getting kicked outta country didn't hurt a thing
Getting kicked outta country didn't hurt a thing

I just wrote a new song today
Pulled out my old guitar and I started to play
Pressin' my fingers into the strings
I felt the feelin's a country song brings

I did some Jones, and one for the Hag
And Waylon and Willie, and the great Johnny Cash
They all got kicked outta country back then
But then, one day, country came callin' again

And Cash stomped out the footlights
And Haggard plum had a ball
And Willie and Waylon and Kris toured the nation
And Jones showed up after all

They lived what they wrote
And they wrote what they sang
Getting kicked outta country didn't hurt a thing
Getting kicked outta country didn't hurt a thing

Well, it don't really matter
'Cause I ain't gonna change
So gettin' kicked outta country won't hurt a thing
