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
 GCD
(riff)                                                       
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
 EmD
So she packs her bags to try her hand
 EmD
Says this might be my last chance

 GCD
She's gone country, look at them boots
 GCD
She's gone country, back to her roots
 GCD
She's gone country, a new kind of 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
 EmD
hear down there it's changed you see
 EmD
They're not as backwards as they used to be

 GCD
He's gone country, look at them boots
 GCD
He's gone country, back to his roots
 GCD
He's gone country, a new kind of 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
 GCD
(riff)                                           
But with the crime and the smog these days this ain't no place for
children
 EmD
Lord it sounds so easy, this shouldn't take long
 EmD
Be back in the money in no time at all

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

2x riff

 GCD
Yeah he's gone country, a new kind of walk
 GCD
He's gone country, a new kind of talk
 GCD
He's gone country, look at them boots
 GCD
He's gone country, oh back to his roots

 GCD
He's gone country           
 GC
He's gone country

Everybody's gone country

The whole world's gone country
