Country When It Rocks

APPEARS ON


I like country when it rocks
I like country when it's real
When it's sung for the school of the hardest knocks
And not for mass appeal
I like country when it's loud
And ringing out for blocks
I like country when it's real
I like country when it rocks

Play a little Johnny Cash for me
Make me feel it down home
When ol' Waylon's on the backbeat, honey
He sounds better than the Stones
Somebody help me make it through the night
I'm seeing double through the neon light
They play it loud and play it right, all night,
I don't wanna go home

I like country when it rocks
I like country when it's real
When it's sung for the school of the hardest knocks
And not for mass appeal
I like country when it's loud
And ringing out the for blocks
I like country when it's real
I like country when it rocks

A little something with a twang to it
Like they used to do
The kind of song that kept you glued to it
Because you knew that it was true
I like the sound of a steel guitar
I like the feel of a roadside bar
I'm sick of looking at these country stars
I would card if I was selling them brew

I like country when it rocks
I like country when it's real
When it's sung for the school of the hardest knocks
And not for mass appeal
I like country when it's loud
And ringing out the for blocks
I like country when it's real
I like country when it rocks
