Travis Tritt


Country Ain't Country

He was raised on a tractor in overalls and boots
Been to college and then law school since leaving 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 now a days people trade heifers online
Dad ain’t selling deals with a handshake like before
Country ain’t country no more
No,country ain’t country no more

The back forty was sold to make up for hard times
Then sold by the half acre lot overnight
The houses went up and the trees were cut down
And there went the finest deer hunting around
Lord everyone’s locking their doors
’cause country ain’t country no more

Now his dad sits in traffic looking ’round at the change
Watching crews turn the county road into four lanes
The old sunday drive has turned into a chore
Country ain’t country no more
Lord,country ain’t country no more

The back forty was sold to make up for hard times
Then sold by the half acre lot overnight
The houses went up and the trees were cut down
And there went the finest deer hunting around
Lord everyone’s locking their doors
’cause country ain’t country no more

There’s no turning back
And you just can’t ignore
That country ain’t country no more
No,country ain’t country no more

    Wow! I love these lyrics. Wish I'm listening to the song; haven't even heard it b4.
