Lyrics
Country is in the Ear of the Beholder
(c) Kevin Emmrich 2009

(verse 1)
I got my radio on
listening to my favorite song
someone asks ...
"Is that really country?"
"It sounds all wrong"

(verse 2)
but it's telling me a story
about what life is really like
about a young girl, a farmer, a soldier
yea, "Country is in the ear of the beholder"

(chorus)
Country is as country does
quick to help and slow to judge
try to understand what folks go through
do what you can to help them improve
we got tunes about moms and dads
about love and loss
songs about a brand new daughter
yea, Country is in the ear of the beholder

(verse)
Now a lot of country singers today
were born and raised in cities
(say it ain't so)
maybe they cut their teeth on rock n' roll
or listening to those pop tart ditties
(ee-hee -- attempted a MJ imitation, ha, ha)

(verse)
But country is as big as all outdoors
we can fit a lot under our tent
around here no one's standing
over your shoulder
and country is in the ear of the beholder

(chorus 2)
Country is as country does
a little bit trashy and a lot a bit fun
try to understand what folks go through
do what you can to help them improve
we got tunes about moms and dads
teenage love and grace from above
we got songs about a brand new daughter
yea, Country is in the ear of the beholder


(Verse 3)
(listen up)
Quite a few folks think that real life
is staring at them from TV (no, no, no)
dancing, cat walks, AI, Big Brother
but Survival ain't guaranteed

(Verse 4)
so get up on your feet and clap your hands
if you ain't groovin', you're big at losin'
you can get better as you get older
and Country is in the ear of the beholder

(chorus )
Yea, Country is as country does
a little bit trashy and a lot a bit fun
try to understand what folks go through
do what you can to help them improve
we got tunes about moms and dads
preachers, teachers, Walmart greeters
and songs about that brand new daughter
yea, .... Country is in the ear of the beholder

(tag)
Yea ... wine, whiskey, pork or kosher
Country is in the ear of the beholder
