Note: Bb is also a A# but I find it easier to play this tune
If I notated it as a Bb.  You can capo the first fret and play
these chords ignoring the sharps and that one flat.  However,
that Bb becomes an A. Cm becomes a Bm when capoed.

D#                               G#          D#
He was raised on a tractor in overalls and boots
D#                                           G#         D#
Been to college and then law school since leaving his roots
D#                        G#         D#   
Came home in a Lexus, he left in a Ford
   G#           Bb        D#   
Country ain't country no more
D#                  G#               D#  
He told his daddy catch up with the times
D#                                G#        D#
He said now a days people trade heifers on-line
D#                                G#              D#   
Dad ain't selling deals with a handshake like be-fore

Country ain't country no more  No country ain't country no more

CHORUS:
           G#                   D#
The back forty was sold to make up for hard times
      Bb                    D# 
Then sold by the half acre lot overnight
      G#                    D#
The houses went up and the trees were cut down
  Bb                         D#
There went the finest deer hunting around
        G#         Cm          Fm           G#            Bb        D#
Lord everyone's locking their doors Cause country ain't country no more



 D#                                  G#            D#         
Now his dad sits in traffic looking round at the change
D#                                     G#        D#      
Watching crews turn the county road in-to four lanes
D#                           G#     D#  
Old Sunday drive's turned in-to a chore
   G#            Bb       Cm         G#             Bb       D#    
Country ain't country no more Lord country ain't country no more

To chorus, lead, chorus, to ending

ENDING:
             Bb                  G#            D#
There's no turning back And you just can't ig-nore
       G#             Bb       Cm       G#            Bb        D#
That country ain't country no more No country ain't country no more
