Lyrics

Well, I moved into town to live like a city slicker,
Loaded my truck, found a place, and here I am,
Though a country boy has a head a bit thicker,
City life is not so hard to understand,

And I've been learnin' how to use a computer,
How to do some picture takin' with a cell phone,
How to get insurance for my truck and motor scooter,
But city life is nothing like back home,

Because where I come from, they call it the boonies,
Dirt roads, back woods, life, as country as can be,
Though now I'm mixed in good with all the town loonies,
They'll never take the country out of me,

And I can still plant me a nice little garden,
Though not nearly as big as it use to be,
And still listen to country music, Dolly Parton,
She's on my coffee mug for all to see,

And I still get to do some dear huntin',
For those split tails runnin' 'round here,
And I make sure to keep my truck tuned and runnin',
By way of Auto Zone or I'd run out of beer,

Yea, livin' in the hood straight from the boonies,
It's great to be an American and free,
Though I'm mixed in good with all the town loonies,
They'll never take the country out of me,

Yea, I moved into town to live like a city slicker,
And I'm doing the best I can,
I can drive by Churchill Downs and hear the horses nicker,
I'm just a country boy with a city slicker plan,

Yea, livin' in the hood straight from the boonies,
It's great to be an American and free,
Though I'm mixed in good with all the town loonies,
They'll never take the country out of me,

No they'll never take the country out of me.
