Clear creeks and cool mountain mornin's. 
Honest work out in the fields. 
Cornbread in my momma's kitchen. 
Daddy saying grace before the meal. 
Family ties run deep in this land.

I was born country and that's what I'll always be. 
Like the rivers and the woodlands wild and free. 
I got a hundred years of down home running through my blood. 
I was born country and this country's what I love. 

Moonlight and you hear beside me. 
Crickets serenadin' in the yard. 
What more could two people ask for. 
Laying here in love beneath the stars. 
Now this is where I want to raise my kids. 
Just the way my mom and daddy did. 

[Chorus: x2] 
I was born country
