(Boudleaux Bryant - Jimmy Dickens)

A lots of folks have told me I got poor
For I got right a winter apple picked up in the fall
But even as a young'n I was not the bashful type
'Cause I could yell up loud to stop them all.

I'm little but I'm loud, I'm poor but I'm proud
I'm countrified and I don't care who knows it
I'm like a Banty Rooster in a big red rooster crowd
I'm puny, short and little but I'm loud.

--- Instrumental ---

I learned to do my singing walking long behind a plow
The singing teacher always passed me by
And so I had to sing the only way I know how
Just rear back, open up and let her fly.

Well, I'm little but I'm loud, I'm poor but I'm proud
I'm countrified and I don't care who knows it
I'm like a Banty Rooster in a big red rooster crowd
I'm puny, short and little but I'm loud.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I sang a special solo song in church one Sunday morn
And I was plumbin' barest to my skin
I hit a high and turn around and as sure as I was born
Two cows and fourteen herses come walking in.

I'm little but I'm loud, I'm poor but I'm proud
I'm countrified and I don't care who knows it
I'm like a Banty Rooster in a big red rooster crowd
I'm puny, short and little but I'm loud.

I'm puny, short and little but I'm loud...
This song is from the album "Born to Sing (Bear Family (Germany))", "Connie in the Country [RCA Camden]" and "I Overlooked An Orchid [Camden]".
