What This Country Needs  Aaron Tippin

  ---(capo 2nd fret)---



[E]If I was a running this country,
I'd st[A]art it over from scr[E]atch,
[E]Keep what's good pile up what's bad,
And t[B]hen I'd strike the match,
Yeah [E]we go back to the basics,
Of h[A]ow things ought to be,
Yeah th[E]ere'd be a line of changes,
If [B]it was left up to [E]me,
(chorus)
[E]Cause what this country needs,
Is a li[A]ttle more steel gu[E]itar,
A[E]nd put a little fiddle right in the middle,
Straight [F#]out of a Texas [B]bar,
And give u[E]s a song we can all sing along,
From sea to shining[A] sea,

Yeah be proud of it and always love it,
That's wh[B]at this country ne[E]eds,


(verse 2)
[E]Now if you want to hear about living
Just tw[A]ist that radio d[E]ial
You c[E]ome to a singer singing what li[B]fe's all about
[E]But you can't deny that people still cry
They la[A]ugh and they smile and they hurt
[E]That's my humble opinion y'all
you can t[B]ake it for what it's wo[E]rth


(chorus)
[E]Cause what this country needs,
Is a li[A]ttle more steel gu[E]itar,
A[E]nd put a little fiddle right in the middle,
Straight [F#]out of a Texas [B]bar,
And give u[E]s a song we can all sing along,
From sea to shining[A] sea,

Yeah be proud of it and always love it,
That's wh[B]at this country ne[E]eds,


(bridge)
Yeah tu[A]rn it on up and let it ring out
Acr[E]oss the land of the free
They o[F#]ught to build a statue to Hank Williams Sr,
And wa[B]tch it change the scenery,


(chorus)
[E]Cause what this country needs,
Is a li[A]ttle more steel gu[E]itar
Yea [E]put a sawing fiddle right square in the middle,
Straight [F#]out of a Texas [B]bar,
And y'a[E]ll give us a song that we all can sing,
From sea to sh[A]ining sea,
Yeah [E]be proud of it and always love it,
That's wh[B]at this country ne[E]eds,
