What This Country Needs

Aaron Tippin/Donny Kees

If I was runniní this country
Iíd start it over from scratch
Keep whatís good, pile up whatís bad
And then Iíd strike the match
Yeah, weíd go back to the basics
Of how things ought to be
Yeah, thereíd be a lot of changes
If it was left up to me
Thatís what this country needs

Chorus

íCause what this country needs
Is a little more steel guitar
And put a litte fiddle right in the middle
Straight out of a texas bar
And give us a song, we can all sing along
From sea to shining sea
Be proud of it and always love it

Now if you want to hear about liviní
Just twist that radio dial
íTil you come to a singer singiní
What life is all about
íCause you canít deny that people still cry
They laugh and they smile and they hurt
And thatís my humble opinion yíall
You can take it for what itís worth

Repeat Chorus

íCause what this country needs
Is a little more steel guitar
And put a little fiddle right in the middle
Straight out of a texas bar
And give us a song, we can all sing along
From sea to shining sea
Be proud of it and always love it
Thatís what this country needs

Bridge

Yeah, turn it on up and let it ring out
Across the land of the free
They ought to build a statue of hand williams, sr.
In washington, D.C.

Repeat Chorus

íCause what this country needs
Is a little more steel guitar
Yeah and put a sawiní fiddle right square in the middle
Straight out of a texas bar
And yíall give us a song, we can all sing along
From sea to shining sea
Be proud of it and always love it
Thatís what this country needs

You just be proud of it and always love it
And thatís what this country needs.
