David Allan Coe - If That Ain't Country - Part 2 Lyrics

Well I'm just an old man now covered with scars
Most of them I got fightin' in them redneck bars
And A bunch of brand new tattoos that Squench put on me

He covered up the ones I'd gotten years ago
Back in prison when I was just Dave Coe
And I wasn't famous then and I wasn't free

You know I grew up in a three room run down shack
At the foot of the hill by the railroad track
Where decent folks don't go when the sun goes down

My daddy worked at the Goodyear tire and rubber company
And he worked on cars
My momma went to church and my daddy went to bars
Most people just called it the hillbilly part of town

I had a '55 Chevy when I was fifteen
I painted it red cause I was still green
Hell I couldn't even afford to buy it gas

Had a .410 rifle and a bowie knife to
Red Man tobacco that I liked to chew
And we'd count the cars when the trains went past
And if that ain't country I'll kiss your ass

If that ain't country it'll hair lip the pope
If that ain't country it's a damn good joke
I've been on the Grand Ol Opry and I know Johnny Cash
And if he ain't country I'll kiss your ass

You know one of my sisters was a lady of the night
Then one day she saw the light
Now she don't do those things that she used to do

She never made the funeral when my daddy died
I said I'd forgive her but I guess I lied
Cause there ain't no way to hide the way that I feel

Me and my brothers took our sister Diane
Down to the funeral home to see the old man
Jimmy was the oldest and Diane she was the youngest one

Jack and Ray was in the middle and then there was me
And I'm the one that turned 23
And grew up to be that yankee's rebel son

Times are changing I heard Bob Dylan say
It's been fifteen now since my father passed away
But I can still picture him in his overalls

Standin' around the house where he made his deals
Around the porch there was a bunch of old wheels
And some used Harley Davidson parts that he sold for cash

There was fifty holes in an old tin roof
Me and my family was livin' proof
Everybody called us old poor white trash
And if that ain't country I'll kiss your ass

If that ain't country it'll hair lip the pope
If that ain't country it's a damn good joke
I've been on the Grand Ol Opry and I know Johnny Cash
And if he ain't country I'll kiss your ass

And if that ain't country I'll kiss your ass
And if that ain't country I'll kiss your ass

  37. Adam Nicholson

    Well I stood in line at an Opry show
    I was gonna meet David Allen Coe
    After an hour
    I was there at last
    But security wouldn't let me past
    I asked why
    They told me "David said you can kiss his ass"

    And then Coe, rised from his seat like you wouldn't know
    He said "Round here, I'm the man,
    And I ain't got time for no more fans
    I'll see ya later
    And he left real fast
    I was pissed
    But if that ain't county I kiss your ass

    James Casey

    Adam Nicholson I got to talk to one of the band members of the Texas Hat band. The stories I heard turned me off of DAC. He was in town once security told a local DJ when DAC walked in the room don’t make eye contact with him.

  38. Jason Voorhees

  41. aitf99

    If you look up OUTLAW in the pictionary this mans picture is in there !!! He never gave a shit about how he looked, or presented himself, or what he did or said. He just did his thing. Not too many people in music or even in life can truely say that.

  42. Luke Flupper

    That shit right there!! Indeed

  43. Jennifer Delay

    Remember he was in trouble an i calmed him down ok

    Joyce Thomas

  47. Melissa Kerns

    He sings good country music about the country life about life and love country music that ain't country i kiss your ass

  48. Melissa Kerns

    We need good singers and sign good country music

  49. chrisgsayshello

    Thing about Coe is his ability to do much with so little in terms of songwriting. If That Ain't Country is barebones as it gets and yet so effectively paints a picture in your mind and conveys his life in just a few short verses. No easy feat.

  50. Mungo Munro

    Son of a bitch giving the finger can kiss our ass.

  51. dhix

  59. Dawn D

    How can i convince mr. David Allan Coe to come back and perform in Ellwood City Pennsylvania? You played at the ranch off of 65 about 12 years back. Since then it has burned down and we mourn it. But we have plenty of other bars sir and maybe you could play to help rebuild the ranch? I believe they still have their outdoor license and besides with three cops and 3,000 people who's going to win that fight!? If you're interested please respond then I will give Ron, owner of the ranch, the info you need. Either way I love you much and keep on cracking out the hillbilly Opera
