Jesus Was a Country Boy - Lyrics

My little boy came in yesterday and he said Dad, can we take a walk
And he asked me how come people ask at the country way he talks
He said I wished we lived in the
city and maybe I could have some pride
I'm just getting so dog gone tired of being called countrified

Well, I put my arm around his
shoulder and said son, things ain't so bad
When you stop and think about it,
this country's given us some of the greatest folks we've ever had
When they needed men to tame the
west, they was the country boys who went
Why, one of them even built the first light
bulb and some have even got to be the president

And a country boy was the first to
fight and one went to range the moon
And a country doctor saved your
life, son, when you you got sick last June
But there's somebody else if you'd stop
and think, to me he was the greatest of all
He was born a long, long time ago in a barn on a bed of straw
I said Jesus was countrified but he was
the greatest man that ever lived and died
And he lives within my soul in a guilty
joy and I remember Jesus was a country boy

Now my boy is walking tall, his name is done forgot
When somebody calls him countrified, he says, why, thanks a lot
And he talks about that hillbilly from the hills of Galilee
And he don't mean no disrespect, he's proud as he can be

And he says Jesus was countrified;
he was the greatest man that ever lived and died
And he lives within my soul in a guilty
joy and I remember Jesus was a country boy
I said Jesus was countrified,
but he was the greatest man that ever lived and died
And he lives within my soul in a guilty
joy and I remember Jesus was a country boy
