Lyrics

If it aint country

Written By: Darryl and Krys Kiernan

The road ahead is full of new horizons,
I can't wait to see what's waiting round the bend.
There's an empty Jim Beam bottle on the table,
And this beat up old guitar's my only friend.

I'm a cowboy and I love to hear those guitar player pick
Willie Nelson Waylon Jennings Charlie Rich.
I sing my songs to you each night and I know that you'll agree.
If it aint country It aint music.

If it aint country, it aint music
Let me hear that pedal steel guitar.
I want to hear those sad old country love songs,
And watch the sun rise through the window of the bar.

There's a new town callin to me down the highway,
There's a lady waving from the porch as I back on out the drive.
I'll find another bar to sing my songs in,
It's the story of a country singers life.

'Cause
I'm a cowboy and I love to hear those guitar player pick
Willie Nelson Waylon Jennings Charlie Rich.
I sing my songs to you each night and I know that you'll agree.
If it aint country It aint music.

If it aint country, it aint music
Let me hear that pedal steel guitar.
I want to hear those sad old country love songs,
And watch the sun rise through the window of the bar.

I want to hear those sad old country love songs,
And watch the sun rise through the window of the bar.
