What are all the country songs that make reference to the differences between country living and city living (particularly those songs mentioning the city life in a negative way)?

I'm not looking for songs that ONLY talk about country living. I want those that specifically call out differences or make light of city living.
Hank Williams Jr., "A Country Boy Can Survive": And you only get mugged if you go downtown
Rhett Akins, "Kiss My Country Ass": Don't wear no fancy clothes / No ties or three piece suits
Luke Bryan, "Country Man": A city boy can't do the things I can
Trace Adkins, "Ladies Love Country Boys": Her daddy wore a tie / Momma never fried a chicken
John Denver, "Thank God I'm a Country Boy": City folk driving in a black limousine / A lot of sad people thinking that's mighty keen
Alan Jackson, "Where I Come From": I don't know about that accent son / Just where do you come from
Alan Jackson, "Gone Country": But with the crime and the smog these days / This ain't no place for children
I didn't realize until I previewed how almost all of these actually have "country" in the title somewhere.
