Country In My Genes Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, they say that I'm too country, the way I look and sound
They wanna to make me over, just a little more uptown
Say I need to change my image, now tell me what's that mean
Don't they know I've got country in my genes?

Well, I can't help the way I talk, I wouldn't change it if I could
Sophisticated ain't my style, but country fits me good
I ain't ashamed to wear what's been handed down to me
Lord, I've got country in my genes

I've got country in my genes, country in my blood
It goes back generations, it's something I'm proud of
It's something I was born with, what you get is what you see
I'm just an old hillbilly with a country song to sing
Lord, I've got country in my genes

Oh, that Earl Scruggs

If country's hit the big time, me I'm still the same
I ain't above my raisin' and I ain't about to change
I wouldn't trade my Wranglers for the finest gabardine
Lord, I've got country in my genes

I've got country in my genes, country in my blood
It goes back generations, it's something I'm proud of
It's something I was born with, what you get is what you see
I'm just an old hillbilly with a country song to sing
Lord, I've got country in my genes

I've got country in my genes, country in my blood
It goes back generations, it's something I'm proud of
It's something I was born with, what you get is what you see
I'm an old Kentucky hillbilly with a country song to sing
Lord, I've got country in my genes

Lord, I've got country in my genes
