Country Persuasion

Country Persuasion

I’ve been to the city
And I didn’t like it much
I’m happier in the country
Where I grew up
With wide-open spaces
And blue sky above

I like honky tonks
With sawdust on the dance floor
And a sign saying live music
By the front door
Yeah the country life
Is the life I love

Chorus:
Cause I’m of the country persuasion
If you know what I mean
I like to dance with pretty girls
In cowboy hats and jeans
Me plus them equals a good time
It’s a real simple equation
I’m of the country persuasion

I work hard all week
But when Friday rolls around
I bet you money I’ll be seen
Out on the town
Buying cold beers for
Every girl I see

If the band is hot
They’ll draw a rowdy crowd
And when that dance floor starts hopping
There ain’t no doubt
There’s no place in the world
That I’d rather be

Chorus:
Cause I’m of the country persuasion
If you know what I mean
I like to dance with pretty girls
In cowboy hats and jeans
Me plus them equals a good time
It’s a real simple equation
I’m of the country persuasion

Bridge:
You won’t see me in no fancy suit
But don’t you step on my cowboy boots
And you won’t find me in no limousine
I like pickup trucks and country scenes

Chorus:
Cause I’m of the country persuasion
If you know what I mean
I like to dance with pretty girls
In cowboy hats and jeans
Me plus them equals a good time
It’s a real simple equation
I’m of the country persuasion
