"Country Girl" is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Dottie West. It was released March 1968 as the first single and title track from the album Country Girl. The song peaked at #15 on the BillboardHot Country Singles chart. In addition, "Country Girl" became West's first song to chart among the Canadian RPM Country chart, reaching a peak of #5. West wrote the song with Red Lane.
"Country Girl" is identified with West's early career persona: the lyrics of the song's chorus are written on her grave. The lyrics themselves describe her love of the country and the carefree feeling – including such things as blue skies, green meadows, butterflies, home-cooked meals and family – it brings.
