Lyrics

CRASH COURSE IN COUNTRY
Bauman/Mahnke
©2003 All rights reserved.

VERSE1: I was a big shot from New York City
She was working at a meat and three
She knocked me off of my corporate ladder right then and there
She said her momma was a Texan
And that her daddy was from Alabam
She said the only man for her was a country boy
(then she tossed her hair)

CHANNEL: So, I pawned my suit for a pair of boots
Now all I really need (is a)

CHORUS: Crash course in country
A little redneck 101
I'm reading, Dixie for Dummies
'Cause she's the one I love
(I need a) Crash course in country

VERSE2: I moved to Nashville and bought a truck
An old Chevy with a little rust
She said I might could use a cowboy hat, she thought
(so I bought one)
I only listened to classical
Now I two step to Hank and Merle
I did it all to win the heart of that southern girl
(who rocked my world)

CHANNEL: I sold my clubs for a fishing pole
Now all I really need (is a)

CHORUS: Crash course in country
A little redneck 101
I'm reading, Dixie for Dummies
'Cause she's the one I love
(I need a)
Crash course in country

BRIDGE: I say "y'all" like a native
But I don't like catfish
And I can't tell Jones from Waylin
But I can line dance in a pinch
I need a...
