California Country

Lyrics

CALIFORNIA COUNTRY


Right off a busy interstate
Near Nashville, Tennessee
I stopped at a place with a blinkin sign
Cause I was low on caffeine
I was drivin to meet my husband
He was stationed at Camp LeJeune
I was comin from California
I hadn't seen him since our honeymoon

The waitress looked me over
As I stepped inside the door
She said Honey, where did you come from
I ain't seen you here before
When I told her California
She started to smile at me
She said I knew you weren't country
Probly don't know a grit from a black eyed pea

CHORUS:
I said I'm California Country
And nobody's takin that from me
Cause Country's more than boots and jeans
Or cowboy hats and rhinestone things
California Country
Means bein there thru thick and thin
It's feelin the songs of Loretta Lynn
And knowin God loves you even if you sin
Yeah, I'm California Country

She looked me over slowly
A funny look was on her face
She poured the coffee, quietly
Said ain't it just movie stars out your way
I started to smile, 'cause I could see
She didn't know what to do with me
So I said, Yeah, there's some of those
But ain't there some in Nashville, I might see

As I walked up to the register
She smiled kinda cordially
She waved her hand, as she turned away
And said, Honey, this one's on me
Thanks, I said, I preciate that
That's a Country thing, you see
Bakersfield or Nashville
There ain't much difference tween you and me

CHORUS:
Yeah, I'm California Country
And nobody's takin that from me
Cause Country's more than boots and jeans
Cowboy hats and rhinestone things
California Country
Means bein there thru thick and thin
It's feelin the songs of Loretta Lynn
And knowin God loves you even if you sin
Yeah, I'm California Country
California Country
