Lyrics by Robert Vernon Longhauser

"Mama sits and cries a lot lately
Papa he don't say much anymore
Times are hard since they closed the mill down
I guess their getting used to being poor

There's fresh hot coffee in the kitchen
And those biscuits and gravy sure smell good
There ain't no picture pretty as the sunshine
When you're looking out the window at the woods

We might be poor but we're proud
And we're living the best way we know how
We don't have much but we don't look for pity
Cause we're country poor and country proud

A stranger came out here from the city
And he tried to take some hard luck photographs
I loaded up my shot gun and I warned him
Hey Mister we don't need no help like that

I still live in the house I was born in
It ain't much but this ole farm will get us by
All I need is a shade tree by my front porch
And have me a tombstone when I die

We might be poor but we're proud
And we're living the best way we know how
We don't have much but we don't look for pity
Cause we're Country Poor and Country Proud

We might be poor but we're proud
And we're living the best way we know how
We don't have much but we don't look for pity
Cause we're Country Poor and Country Proud
Cause we're Country Poor and Country Proud"
