Words and Music by Harlan Howard Sonny Throckmorton and Brent Maher
You've been lookin' for love all around the world
Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?
Why not me?
Well, you've finally come down to your old hometown
Your Kentucky girl's been waiting patiently
Why not me?

[Chorus]
Why not me on a rainy day?
Why not me to love your cares away?
Why not me?
Why not me when the nights get cold?
Why not me when you're growin' old?
Why not me?

You've been searchin' from here to Singapore
Ain't it time that you notice the girl next door, baby
Why not me?
You had to see if the world was round
It's time that you learned how good settlin' down could be
Why not me?

[Chorus]

You've been lookin' for love all around the world
Baby, don't you know this country girl's still free?

[Repeat and Fade]

Baby, why not me?
