G 
I was raised on country sun-shine  
C 
green grass beneath my feet
A7 
Running through fields of daisies a  
D7 
wading through the creek
 
You  
G 
love me and it's inviting to go where  
C 
life is more exciting
 
But I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine
I was raised on country sunshine
 
I'm  
C 
happy with the simple things
 
A  
A7 
Saturday night dance a picture show and the  
D7 
joy that the bluebird brings
 
G 
I love you please believe me I wouldn't  
C 
want you to ever leave me
 
But I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine
 
There's  
D7 
just something bout the morning makes each  
G 
day a joy to see
 
And  
A7 
nighttime brings a peaceful feeling  
D7 
rest inside of me
 
G 
I love you please believe me I wouldn't  
C 
want you to ever leave me
 
But I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine
 
Yes you love me and it's inviting to go where  
C 
life is more exciting
 
But I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine
 
Hmmm I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine
 
Oh I was  
D7 
raised on country  
G 
sunshine

Who is Dottie West?
- Dorothy "Dottie" Marie Marsh West (October 11, 1932 - September 4, 1991) was an American country music singer and songwriter. Along with her friends and fellow recording artists Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, she is considered one of the genre's most influential and groundbreaking female artists. West's career started in the 1960s, with her top-10 hit, "Here Comes My Baby Back Again", which won her a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1965, the first woman in country music to receive a Grammy.
In the early 1970s, West wrote a popular commercial for the Coca-Cola company, titled "Country Sunshine", which reached number two on Billboard's Hot Country Singles in 1973. In the late 1970s, she teamed up with country pop superstar Kenny Rogers for a series of duets, which took her career to new highs, earning platinum-selling albums and number-one records for the first time.
Her duet recordings with Rogers, "Every Time Two Fools Collide", "All I Ever Need Is You", and "What Are We Doin' in Love", became country music standards. In the mid-1970s, her image and music underwent a metamorphosis, bringing her to the peak of her popularity as a solo act, and reaching number one on her own for the first time in 1980 with "A Lesson in Leavin'".
In 2018, West was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
