Country Isn't Country Anymore

Country isn't country anymore
Every time I listen, I get a little sore
They forgot about the trains
Mama's eyes and summer rains
Daddy's hands and growing pains
Country isn't country anymore
Now they still wear hats and cowboy boots
But they are no longer holding to their roots
They are getting it all wrong
It's just not a country song
We all can't sing along
Country isn't country anymore.
Let me hear Hank sing Your Cheatin' Heart
Kris and Johnny can tear your soul apart
A sad song can make you cry
Drink all night and say goodbye
She's gone, I wonder why
Country isn't country anymore
Patsy, Merle and Waylon are all gone
There's not too many left to carry on
The sound of a steel guitar
Sawdust and a rowdy bar
Where an outlaw is a star
Country isn't country anymore

    For me growing up it was Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers The Statler Brothers, the Kendalls, not to mention CW McCall and John Denver. My parents love country music so much they named me after one of Dolly Parton songs. - - Jolene

    yes, I think it's called crossovers. the ones that are also in the popular music range. I listen only to popular music and that's the time I hear the crossovers. If I am with hubbie, I hear the country channels!! Good one.
