Can’t Cover Up Hillbilly

Play

Written by: Tedd Swormstedt

Her Trans Am’s now a mini van
Big hair’s been cut short
Halter tops or short cutoffs
Are Christian Dior
Drinks red wine instead of moonshine
Eats sushi instead of pork
Broadway plays the Met ballet
Instead of George Jones
But when she’s in the country she feels it in her soul she’s home

She loves her Skynard turn it up
Daisy Dukes and long legged strut
Loves her Bible and shotgun
Hot June nights and ice cold bud
It’s in her heart running through her blood
It’s who she is can’t cover up Hillbilly

His Gucci suit hides a tattoo
Springbreak ’94
His doublewide’s now a hi-rise
View of the shore
Sold his truck joined the country club
Now he’s yelling fore
Maserati Pavarotti
Instead of playing Coe
But when he’s in the country he feels it in his soul he’s home

He loves Hank Junior turn it up
Camo clothes and hunting bucks
Loves his Bible and shotgun
Hot June nights and ice cold Bud
It’s in his heart running through his blood
It’s in you, it’s in me, it’s in all of us
In our hearts and in our blood
We can’t cover up Hillbilly
