Atkins, Rodney - Tell A Country Boy Lyrics

He aint much for talkin,
But he means every word he says,
Well that color on his arms and neck aint from no tannin bed,
Leaves no doubt bout where he stand on a chevy, or tha lord,
Yea you can always tell a country boy

Now his idea of heaven is home sweet home east tennessee
But for a girl like you he would pull up roots and move down the road a peice
He'll always take his own sweet time if you give him a choice
Yea you can always tell a country boy

Yea you can always tell him but you cant tell him much
Cuz all he's ever gonna be is who he always was
A cross between his old man and his mommas pride and joy
You can always tell a country boy

He'll go off and take a long walk when he needs some time to think
Might even let ya drive his truck when he's had to much to drink
Bout as true blue as ol glory wavin out there on tha pourch
Yea you can always tell a country boy

Yea you can always tell him but you cant tell him much
Sometimes his gears turn so slow you swear there gonna rust
From tha way he bangs that ol guitar to tha gravel in his voice
You can always tell a country boy

Now you can drag him from tha country every now and then
But you can't drag them forty acres outta him
Yea you can always tell him but you can't tell him much
He's on tha fence about alot of things but on you his minds made up
Cuz he swears theres nothing sweeter than tha sweet sound of your voice
You can always tell a country boy
Whatevers on your heart now come on and tell this country boy

  41. Holton Greene

    Country ain't drinking or having a truck it ain't dipping its worn boots callused hands and being kind to any women to cross his path

    Dylan Pyle

    Country is looking at a cow and thinking it just looks like a piece of steak

    robert wilson

    @Dylan Pyle all I think about when I see a cow is that their a big pain in the ass to take care of lol

    Joshua Stevens

    robert wilson I was never raised on a farm. But I was raised to work hard, to not bitch and work for what ya want. Anyone can hunt and fish or do anything outdoors. Anyone can learn how to grow food but not everyone can be out in 30 below checking cattle or in 115 degree heat fixing fence. I consider myself a Cowboy only because I’m a trucker that hauls nothing but cattle. Many cow haulers consider themselves cowboys.

    robert wilson

    @Joshua Stevens exactly everyone has their own kind of country

    Joshua Stevens

    robert wilson Yes. The song Country by Mo Pitney says it all about what being country is.

    Robert Henry
