      David Allan Coe - If That Ain't Country Música y Letra

      THE OLD MAN WAS COVERED WITH TATTOOS AND SCARS
      HE GOT SOME IN PRISON AND OTHERS IN BARS
      THE REST HE GOT WORKING' ON OLD JUNK CARS
      IN THE DAYTIME
      THEY LOOKED LIKE TOMBSTONES IN OUR YARD
      AND I NEVER SEEN HIM WHEN HE WASN'T TIRED AND MEAN
      HE SOLD USED PARTS TO MAKE ENDS MEET
      COVERED WITH GREASE FROM HIS HEAD TO HIS FEET
      CUSSING' THE SWEAT AND THE TEXAS HEAT
      AND skeeterz
      AND THE NEIGHBORS SAID WE LIVED LIKE HICKS
      BUT THEY BRUNG THEIR CARS FOR PA TO FIX ANYHOW
      HE WAS VETERAN-PROUD, TRIED AND TRUE
      HE'D FOUGHT TILL HIS HEART WAS BLACK AND BLUE
      DIDN'T KNOW HOW HE'D MADE IT THROUGH THE HARD TIMES
      
      HE BOUGHT OUR HOUSE ON THE G.I. BILL
      BUT IT WASN'T WORTH ALL HE HAD TO KILL TO GET IT
      HE DRANK PEARL IN A CAN AND JACK DANIELS BLACK
      CHEWED TOBACCO FROM A MAIL POUCH SACK
      HAD AN OLD DOG THAT WAS TRAINED TO ATTACK
      SOMETIMES
      HE'D GET DRUNK AND MEAN AS A RATTLESNAKE
      AND THERE WASN'T TOO MUCH
      THAT HE WOULD TAKE FROM A STRANGER
      
      THERE WERE THIRTEEN KIDS AND A BUNCH OF DOGS
      A HOUSE FULL OF CHICKENS AND A YARD FULL OF HOGS
      I SPENT THE SUMMERTIME CUTTING' UP LOGS FOR THE WINTER
      TRYING' LIKE THE DEVIL TO FIND THE LORD
      WORKING' LIKE A NIGGER FOR MY ROOM AND BOARD
      COAL-BURIN' STOVE, NO NATURAL GAS
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS
      
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY,
      IT'LL HAIR LIP THE POPE
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'S A DAMN GOOD JOKE
      I'VE SEEN THE GRAND OLE OPRY,
      AND I'VE MET JOHNNY CASH
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS
      
      RECITATION:
      MAMA SELLS EGGS AT A GROCERY STORE
      MY OLDEST SISTER IS A FIRST-RATE WHORE
      DAD SAYS SHE CAN'T COME HOME ANYMORE
      AND HE MEANS IT
      MA JUST SITS AND KEEPS HER SILENCE
      SISTER, SHE LEFT 'CAUSE DAD GOT VIOLENT
      AND HE KNOWS IT
      MAMA SHE'S OLD FAR BEYOND HER TIME
      FROM CHOPPING TOBACCO AND I'VE SEEN HER CRYING'
      WHEN BLOOD STARTED FLOWING' FROM HER CALLOUSED HAND AND
      
      IT HURT ME
      SHE'D JUST KEEP WORKING' TRYING' TO HELP THE OLD MAN
      TO THE END OF ONE ROW AND BACK AGAIN LIKE ALWAYS
      SHE'S BEEN THROUGH HELL SINCE JUNIOR WENT TO JAIL
      WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT SHE AIN'T NEVER FAILED
      TO GET DOWN ON HER KNEES AND PRAY
      BECAUSE SHE LOVES HIM
      TOLD ALL THE NEIGHBORS HE WAS OFF IN THE WAR
      FIGHTING' FOR FREEDOM,
      HE'S GOOD TO THE CORE AND SHE'S PROUD
      NOW OUR PLACE WAS A GRAVEYARD FOR AUTOMOBILES
      AT THE END OF THE PORCH THERE WAS FOUR STACKS OF WHEELS
      AND TIRES FOR SALE FOR A DOLLAR OR TWO
      CASH
      
      THERE WAS FIFTY HOLES IN AN OLD TIN ROOF
      ME AND MY FAMILY WE WAS LIVING' PROOF
      THE PEOPLE WHO FORGOT ABOUT POOR WHITE TRASH
      AND IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'LL HAIR LIP THE POPE
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, IT'S A DAMN GOOD JOKE
      I'VE SEEN THE GRAND OLE OPRY,
      AND I'VE MET JOHNNY CASH
      IF THAT AIN'T COUNTRY, I'LL KISS YOUR ASS
      I'M THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES
      CONCERNING THE GREAT SPECKLED BIRD
      I DIDN'T KNOW GOD MADE HONKY-TONK ANGELS
      AND WENT BACK TO THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE

      David Allan Coe - If That Ain't Country Música y Letra
