Lyrics

That's What Country Means

Written By: Dorie Dickey

V1:
Sittin' on the porch watching cars drive by
Drinking sweet tea, just passing the time
And Mamaw telling us about her good ol' days
I'd take nothing but my way of life
Hand rolled butter biscuits that taste just right
And dad's old Chevy still runs with one tail light

Chorus:
Its honest living and it's honest loving
It's peach pie after church on Sunday
It's a checkerboard chat with a glass of lemonade
It ain't store bought ice cream, no it's homemade
It's RC Cola and shellin' butter beans
That's what country means
V2:
Watch the stars falling in the Bama sky
Grab a Mason jar and catch those fire flies
Somebody sing me a song about the man in the moon
I see two kids kissing, their love is brand new
Makes me think of Hank's 'the Lovesick Blues'
'Round here when you say forever, you know it's true

Chorus:
('Cause) Its honest living and it's honest loving
It's peach pie after church on Sunday
It's a checkerboard chat with a glass of lemonade
It ain't store bought ice cream, no it's homemade
It's RC Cola and shellin' butter beans
That's what country means

Bridge:
When life gets to goin' a little too fast
Just pull up a chair and lean on back, yeah

Chorus:
(Well) Its honest living and it's honest loving
It's peach pie after church on Sunday
It's a checkerboard chat with a glass of lemonade
It ain't store bought ice cream, no it's homemade
It's RC Cola and shellin' butter beans
That's what country means

Oh, that's what country means to me
