"Count Me In" is a song written by Chuck Jones and co-written and recorded by American country artist Deana Carter. It was released in March 1997 as the third single from her debut album, Did I Shave My Legs for This?. It was a Top 10 hit on both the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks and Canadian RPM Country Singles charts.



The song is a soft love ballad, with the instrumentation starting lightly and building up towards the end with an electric guitar bridge. The song's lyrics speak of a narrator who is telling a lover what she does and doesn't want in her relationship.

If heartaches and tears and shadows of doubt
Are part of the deal, you can count me out
But if you're talking about a game I can win
You can count me in
