G C D (riff)
She's been playing that room on the strip for ten years in Vegas
G C D (riff)
Every night she looks in the mirror but she only ages
(riff)     [G]                                    [C]             [D]
She's been reading 'bout Nashville and all the records that everybody's
buying
G C D (riff)
Says I'm a simple girl myself grew up on Long Island
So she [Em]packs her bags to [D]try her hand
Says [Em]this might be [D]my last chance

She's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
She's gone [G]country, [C]back to her [D]roots
She's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
Em/NC
She's gone country, here she comes

2x riff

G C D (riff)
Well the folk scene's dead, but he's holding out in the village
G C D (riff)
He's been writing songs, speaking out against wealth and privilege
G C D (riff)
He says I don't believe in money, but a man could make him a killin'
G C D (riff)
Cause some of that stuff don't sound much different than Dylan
I [Em]hear down there it's [D]changed you see
Th[Em]ey're not as backwards as they [D]used to be

He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, [C]back to his [D]roots
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
Em/NC
He's gone country, here he comes

Play chorus 1x

G C D (riff)
He commutes to L.A., but he's got a house in the valley
G C D (riff)
But the bills are pilling up and the pop scene just ain't on a rally
G C D (riff)
He says honey I'm a serious composer schooled in voice and composition
(riff)       [G]                         [C]          [D]
But with the crime and the smog these days this ain't no place for
children
Lord it [Em]sounds so easy, this [D]shouldn't take long
Be [Em]back in the money in [D]no time at all

He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, [C]back to his [D]roots
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]suit
Em/NC
He's gone country, here he comes

2x riff

Yeah he's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]walk
He's gone [G]country, a [C]new kind of [D]talk
He's gone [G]country, [C]look at them [D]boots
He's gone [G]country, oh [C]back to his [D]roots

He's gone [G]country    [C]      [D]
He's gone [G]country    [C]
Every[D]body's gone [G]country   [C]
[D]Yeah we've gone [G]country    [C]
D G C D G C D Fade out
The whole world's gone country
