He was raised on a tractor in overalls and boots
Been to college and then law school since leavin' his roots
Came home in a Lexus, he left in a Ford
Country ain't country no more

He told his daddy, "catch up with the times"
He said, "nowadays people trade heifers online"
Well dad ain't sealin' deals with a handshake like before
Country ain't country no more
No, country ain't country no more

[Chorus]
The back 40 was sold to make up for hard times
And sold by the half-acre lot overnight
The houses went up, and the trees were cut down
There went the finest deer huntin' around
Lord everyone's lockin' their doors
'Cause country ain't country no more

Now his dad sits in traffic lookin round at the change
Watchin crews turn the county road into four lanes
The ole Sunday drive has turned into a chore
Country ain't country no more
Lord country ain't country no more

[Chorus]

There's no turnin' back, and you just can't ignore
That country ain't country no more
No, country ain't country no more
