lyrics

Born in Louisiana south of Dixon’s line
She lives in high cotton in a house so fine
Goes juking on Fridays and fishing in the dark
Has faith in her country and country in her heart

She’s country
Sweet country

She’s country as cornbread
Sweet as cherry wine

Raised to pray on Sundays and not drink alcohol
Likes hoe downs and gets down to good old rock and roll
She’s down home and home grown and speaks a southern drawl
Has faith in her country and that should say it all

She’s country
Sweet country

She’s country as cornbread
Sweet as cherry wine


She’s country as cornbread
Country as cornbread

Her boyfriend’s a marine from up in Arkansas
A true blue and she knew he’d love her ever more
They get married next summer before he goes to war
He’s got faith in his country he’s country to the core

They’re country
Sweet country
They’re country as cornbread
Sweet as cherry wine

They’re country
Sweet country
They’re country as cornbread
Sweet as cherry wine
