Blake Shelton – God’s Country Lyrics

God’s Country Lyrics by Blake Shelton


Right outside of this one church town
There’s a gold, dirt road to a whole lot of nothin’
Got a deed to the land but it ain’t my ground
This is God’s country
We pray for rain, thankin’ when it fallen
‘Cause it brings a grain and a little bit of money
We put it back in the play
I guess that’s why they call it God’s country
I saw the light in the sunrise
Sittin’ back in a 40 in a muddy riverside
Gettin’ baptised in holy water and ‘shine
With the dogs running
Saved by the sound of the been found
Mixin’ whistle in the wind, that’ll get you Heaven bound
The devil went down to Georgia but he didn’t stick around
This is God’s country

We turned the dirt and worked until the week’s done
We take a break and break bread on sun
And then do it all again
‘Cause we’re proud to be from God’s country (Yeah, yeah)

I saw the light in the sunrise
Sittin’ back in a 40 in a muddy riverside
Gettin’ baptised in holy water and ‘shine
With the dogs running
Saved by the sound of the been found
Mixin’ whistle in the wind, that’ll get you Heaven bound
The devil went down to Georgia but he didn’t stick around
This is God’s country (Yeah)

(This is God’s country)
God’s country

I don’t care what my headstone reads
And what kind of pine wood box I end up in
When it’s my time, lay me six feet deep
In God’s country (Yeah, yeah)

I saw the light in the sunrise
Sittin’ back in a 40 in a muddy riverside
Gettin’ baptised in holy water and ‘shine
With the dogs running
Saved by the sound of the been found
Mixin’ whistle in the wind, that’ll get you Heaven bound
The devil went down to Georgia but he didn’t stick around
This is God’s country (God’s country)
Yeah, I saw the light in the sunrise
Sittin’ back in a 40 in a muddy riverside
Gettin’ baptised in holy water and ‘shine
With the dogs running
Saved by the sound of the been found
Mixin’ whistle in the wind, that’ll get you Heaven bound
The devil went down to Georgia but he didn’t stick around
This is God’s country
