I’m Still A Simple Country Boy

Well it’s been a long hard road
To get here from where I come
From but now I’m a livin’ high
On the hog and the best is yet
To come still you can’t judge a
Book by its cover I have heard
Them say, you are and always
Will be the product of your long
Time gone yesterday…
In my heart I will always be
South is in my blood. The mountains
The rivers and the corn fields I
Love, mama’s fresh baked apple pies
Sunday picnics down by the river side
BOY and will be ’til the day I die…
Oh what I’d give to know then what
I know now, it isn’t as simple now to
Be a superstar, I’ve been bought and
I’ve been sold…
Well I ain’t the kind to throw in the towel
But heavens I need a little time to myself
To get back to my roots and so it’s back
To the country and back to where I really
Feel at home and where I am really alive
Don’t you know I’M STILL A SIMPLE?
COUNTRY BOY and will be ’til the day
I die!
