Song Description

Country music has turned into anything but country music the way I remembered it. Please fix this and get back to real writers.

Story Behind the Song

Heard a commentator on TV say, "Please gimme back my country" and I instantly heard the double meaning of the USA and country music. Thanks FOX News!

Lyrics

Give Me Back My Country

What's goin' on with my radio
I can't listen to it anymore
I'd change the station but it's all the same
Sugar coated pop.. stop, I'm goin' insane

Whatever happened to my steel guitar
I need some fiddle in a honky tonk bar
Some hillbilly tunes from out in the sticks
I didn't know that it would come to this

Gimme back my country
Let me hear the heartbeat of the South
Gimme back my country
Or please kindly shut your mouth

Came home and turned on the CMA
Lookin at kids who just learned how to play
Singin songs about the boys at the high school prom
Somebody tell me where my whole world's gone

Gimme Charlie Daniels and Charlie Pride
Jones and Hag and Patsy Cline
Willy and Hank, don't forget about Cash
People I want my country back

Gimme back my country
Let me hear the heartbeat of the South
Gimme back my country
Or please kindly shut your mouth

Red White and Blue
Tell me what you're gonna do
Home of the brave and free
Gimme back my country

What's goin' on with my radio
I can't listen to it anymore
I'd change the station but it's all the same..

Gimme back my country..
