John Anderson - Takin' The Country Back Lyrics

Goin' down to Muscle Shoals where the swamp water rhythm flows
Live the only way I know I'm just a common man
Headed down to Texas way where the honky tonk heroes play
Gonna find that lost highway that's where I'll make a stand

Takin' the country back it's high time we face the facts
Heart and soul slippin' through the cracks we're takin' the country back
Takin' the country back we're not sure just where it's at
We've got to get it back on track we're takin' the country back
Bright lights and limousines fame and fortune I have seen
Still searchin' for that dream it's callin' me back home
Down to earth where the music's real singin' bout what the people feel
Timeless truth now that's the deal we got to pass in on y'all

Yeah takin' the country back...

Yeah takin' the country back...
Takin' the country on back

John Anderson Takin' The Country Back Comments
  1. Joshua Brooks

    This song should've played over the white house's loudspeakers when Donald Trump became president.

    P. S. I think it would be awesome if America celebrates Trump's 2020 victory by playing this song on the radio. Anyone agree?

  2. Dana Rogers

    One of the all time greats. Coolest voice ever. Real country

  3. Please Bring Back Apostrophes

    Hell YEAH!!! #KAG2020 with Trump/Pence!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    Taking our country back...putting the twang back in our music and taking our country back from the liberal lunatics ruining this great country of ours. We did that on Nov 8, 2016. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  17. B Joseph

    should be Trumps theme song

    michael smith

    frankly I could care less and yu no doubt a trump supporter a law breaking head busting trump voter now so screw yourself and the horse you rode in n..

    B Joseph

    Michael Smith you are obviously a sick liberal.


    If you actually--oh, I don't know--WATCH the video, you'll see it's about taking country music back to its roots. At the time when Marty Stuart and Curtis Wright wrote it, country artists were having mainstream crossover success on the pop charts (Shania Twain's album, The Woman in Me, went Diamond), so this song was in response to that. It has nothing to do with politics and Anderson would probably be repulsed by the idea of a politician using it.
