Story behind the song
A true story of part of my life. On the back of a cottonsack in Arkansas before I was a year old with my mama pickin' cotton in it. Definitely country before it was cool.
Lyrics
Back To Country When I was but a baby About a year or so My mom picked cotton in a sack And on it me she’d tow My folks were migrant workers Each summer on our way We lived hard but happy Country music lit our way It was on the AM radio With singers by the score We listened to Hank Sr. Charley Pride and many more If you can’t hear my southern drawl In that I had no part ---------------------------- {Chorus But country’s in my attitude It’s deep within my heart I ain’t gone as Alan put it I got lost along the way But now I’m back to country And you can bet I’ll stay While I was still a youngun’ A child of only five My dad got hit by cancer And fought to stay alive We moved up north by family I never did fit in My accent they made fun of This fight I couldn’t win If you can’t hear my southern drawl In that I had no part---------------------------- {Chorus But country’s in my attitude It’s deep within my heart I ain’t gone as Alan put it I got lost along the way But now I’m back to country And you can bet I’ll stay Instr.Brk I left my roots in country Took years to get ‘em back I went through rock and disco But missed that cotton sack If you can’t hear my southern drawl In that I had no part ------------------------- {Chorus But country’s in my attitude It’s deep within my heart I ain’t gone as Alan put it I got lost along the way But now I’m back to country And you can bet I’ll stay But now I’m back to country And you can bet I’ll stay Copyright 2003 John W.
