lyrics

Thought Illinois was a city place 'til I moved out of town
Soon as you leave Chicago it's just corn the whole way down
Surprisingly the land of Lincoln's got a southern voice
There's no place more country than Illinois

We're inbred mangy country folk, of that there is no doubt
The attorney general's dad is the speaker of the house
Being someone's brother is the way you get employed
There's no place more country than Illnois

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois

Thought I'd have a culture shock when I moved to Tennessee
But pretty soon I realized everyone there's just like me
We've even got a Chick-fil-A, not like we had a choice
There's no place more country than Illinois

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois

I ain't trying to hurt no feelings
I ain't trying to raise no hell
But is there anything more country
Than two governors in jail

Illinois, Illinois, oh, you're my pride and joy
Where the Cubbies haven't won
Since my great-granddad was a boy
We may not have the cowboy boots
But we've sure got the down-home roots
There's no place more country than Illinois
