I was born in the country, I was raised with the sun
The flowers were my pillow when the day's work was done
Down in the valley shone the bright neon signs
The call of the city life kept going through my mind
Oh yeah, the days of my childhood would soon be left behind

It was a Saturday morning when the snow lay on the ground
Pa said the time had come when I could move to town
So I kissed goodbye to mama, held on tight to papa's hand
I saw a tear in mama's eye but I did not understand
'Cause I was just a country girl being brought up on the land

Goodbye mama, let me see your smile
Wipe away that teardrop from your eye
I won't forget that I'm a country girl
I got to go, but I hate to say goodbye
So long, papa, I'll be seeing you
But I'll be coming home again someday
No, I won't forget that I'm a country girl
A country girl, you know I'll always stay

I was born in the country, I was raised with the sun
The flowers were my pillow when the day's work was done
Down in the valley shone the bright neon signs
Yet I know where I belong, I got my peace of mind
Oh yeah, I was born a country girl and that just suits me fine

Goodbye mama, let me see your smile
Wipe away that teardrop from your eye
I won't forget that I'm a country girl
I got to go, but I hate to say goodbye
So long, papa, I'll be seeing you
But I'll be coming home again someday
No, I won't forget that I'm a country girl
I'll come back to you, believe me
I won't forget that I'm a country girl
A country girl, you know I'll always stay
