[Intro]
Am  -  C  -  Dm  -  Am
[Verse 1] Am Right outside of this one church town C There's a gold dirt road to a whole lot of nothing Dm Got a deed to the land but it ain't my ground Am This is God's country Am We pray for rain and thank Him when it's fallin' C 'Cause it brings a grain and a little bit of money Dm We put it back in a plate, I guess that's why they call it Am God's country [Chorus] Am I saw the light in a sunrise C Sittin' back in a 40 on the muddy river side Dm Am Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine with the dogs runnin' Am Saved by the sound of the being found C Dixie whistle in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound Dm The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around Am This is God's country
[Verse 2] Am We turn the dirt and work until the week's done C We take a break and break bread on Sunday Dm Then do it all again 'cause we're proud to be Am From God's country (Yeah) [Chorus] Am I saw the light in a sunrise C Sittin' back in a 40 on the muddy river side Dm Am Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine with the dogs runnin' Am Saved by the sound of the being found C Dixie whistle in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound Dm The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around Am This is God's country yea! [Kick-ass Guitar Solo] Am - C - Dm - Am [Bridge] Am I don't care what my headstone reads C Or what kind of pine wood box I end up in Dm When it's my time landing 6 feet deep in Am God's country [Chorus] Am I saw the light in a sunrise C Sittin' back in a 40 on the muddy river side Dm Am Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine with the dogs runnin' Am Saved by the sound of the being found C Dixie whistle in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound Dm The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around Am This is God's country [Chorus] Am yea,I saw the light in a sunrise C Sittin' back in a 40 on the muddy river side Dm Am Gettin' baptized in holy water and shine with the dogs runnin' Am Saved by the sound of the being found C Dixie whistle in the wind, that'll get you Heaven bound Dm The devil went down to Georgia but he didn't stick around Am This is God's country

Song Review

What a simple straight-to-point song. Yes, this is country. Even if it’s normally seen as #BlakeShelton, this guy knows his roots and it’s strong-gripping as ever. Guitarists and vocalists will first notice the 2nd stanza of the 1st verse, right there, you’ll learn why Blake is one of the biggest names in country music today. He sings on the bridge of the song that whatever his status is now, he doesn’t care. All that’s important to him is leaving his legacy to the future generations to come. Amazing!
