Alan Jackson – Country Boy lyrics

(Keith Stegall/Charlie Craig)

I work a forty hour week and I earn my keep

And I try to walk proud and tall

I keep my nose to the ground, I don’t get behind

And I don’t back up at all

Well my neck’s a little red, my collar’s blue

I sip a little coffee, and I drink a little booze

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

I’m my daddy’s spittin’ image and my mama’s pride and joy

There ain’t nothing down home that I really don’t enjoy

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

I drive a pickup truck and I don’t pass the buck

And I always speak my mind

I’m hooked on T.V., Rolaids, and B.C.’s

And I know how to have a good time

I’m a little bit rowdy and a little bit tame

Ain’t no way I’m ever gonna change

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

I’m my daddy’s spittin’ image and my mama’s pride and joy

There ain’t nothing down home that I really don’t enjoy

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

Well I must admit that I’ve mellowed a bit

Father Time can slow you down

I’m still doin’ all I used to do

It just takes a little longer now

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

I’m my daddy’s spittin’ image and my mama’s pride and joy

There ain’t nothing down home that I really don’t enjoy

‘Cause I’m an all American country boy

I’m just a country boy

A good ol’ country boy
