Coward of the County è un brano interpretato e inciso da Kenny Rogers, contenuto nell'album Kenny pubblicato nel 1979. Ottavo lavoro in studio per il countryman texano, viene realizzato dopo tre anni di continui successi commerciali ottenuti grazie anche all'incontro con il produttore Larry Butler. Anche questa canzone è tra le più riuscite del suo repertorio e reca le firme di Roger D. Bowling e Billy Ed Wheeler; traccia di chiusura dell'album, vede come protagonista un giovane pacifista soprannominato (in maniera sprezzante) "Il Giallo", dagli abitanti del suo rione.
