I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool Lyrics

Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney

I remember wearin’ straight leg Levis
Flannel Shirts Even When
They weren’t in style.
I remember singin’ with Roy Rogers
At the movies when the
West was really wild.

And I was listenin’ to the Opry
When all of My Friends
Were Diggin’ Rock ‘n Roll
And Rhythm & Blues
I Was Country,
When Country Wasn’t Cool.

I remember circlin’ the drive-in,
Pullin’ up and turnin’ down George Jones.
I remember when no one was lookin’
I was puttin’ peanuts in My Coke.

I took a lot of kiddin’
‘Cause I never did fit in
Now look at everybody,
Tryin’ to be what I was then.
I Was Country,
When Country Wasn’t Cool.

I Was Country,
When Country Wasn’t Cool.
I Was Country,
From My hat down to My boots.
I still act, And look the same,
What You see ain’t nothin’ new.
I Was Country,
When Country Wasn’t Cool.
