lyrics

Country Songs

When I was young I never cared for country songs
and the honky tonks they all seemed strange to me
but honey since you’ve gone now I realized I’m wrong
gotta get your heart good and broken before you sing along

So thank you for teaching me to love country songs
for making me so sad I wanna sing along
when I hear that fiddle start I can dance all over my broken heart
and I hardly care that you don’t love me like you used to do
no I hardly care that you don’t love me like you used to do

You’ll never understand me like Buck Owens does
and I’ll never love you quite like I love him
where’s your fancy suit in technicolor blue
you wouldn’t win a fight not with a single Buckaroo

You’ll never understand me like Dwight Yoakam does
and I’ll never love you quite like I love him
with his hat down in his eyes honey please don’t even try
it’s a miracle the way he wears his jeans tighter than mine

So thank you for teaching me to love country songs
for making me so sad I wanna sing along
when I hear that fiddle start I can dance all over my broken heart
and I hardly care that you don’t love me like you used to do
no I hardly care that you don’t love me like you used to do

So boys bring out the guitar and the mandolin
we’ll have another round and then we’ll start again
I know you’ve done me wrong and you’ve already moved on
but thank you for teaching me to love those country songs
thank you for teaching me to love country songs
