Can't Take the Country from the Girl - vocals by Maddie Paden

Growing up in a small town in the country.
Living right we were raised the country way.
Mom and dad, they taught us to be thankful.
Every night on bended knee we’d pray.

Went to school in the city far from home.
The kids there didn’t understand or care.
‘bout the country values we were raised on.
Their teasing was a cross I’d have to bear.

Chorus:
You can take the girl out of the country.
Take away the gentle summer breeze.
Flowing through the valleys o’er the mountains.
Dancing with the flowers and the trees.

Heaven knows my country roots run deep.
My love for the country’s true and pure.
You can take the girl out of the country.
You can’t take the country from the girl.

Grown up now and living in the city.
Trying to live our lives the country way.
Memories of childhood fill my daydreams.
Leave me with a smile upon my face.

Deep inside of me there’s something burning.
Fueled by that gentle summer breeze.
That calls me to the valleys o’er the mountains.
The country’s where my heart will always be.

Chorus:
You can take the girl out of the country.
Take away the rivers and the trees.
Far from the beauty and the splendor.

That takes my breath and brings me to my knees.

Heaven knows my country roots run deep.
My love for the country’s true and pure.
You can take the girl out of the country.
You can’t take the country from the girl.

You can take the girl out of the country.
You can’t take God’s country from this girl.
