Well I grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn’t know.
My Pops picked the place up for fifteen hundred bucks back in 1964.
My grandfather was a drinker back in the day *he* put em down
but a war is known to change a man and the whiskeys known to change the man
but no that’s not me.
I rarely drink from a bottle
but I’ll smoke a little weed.
I still live in the sticks where you wouldn’t go in a town of 1200 down an old dirt road ‘cause a country boy is all I’ll ever be.
Now it’s been 12 years since I’ve sold my soul to the devil in L.A.
He said sign your name here on the dotted line and your songs they all will play.
He set up shot on Sunset
he put me up at the Marquee
he said you want to sell a million records boy you better listen to me.
He said change your style whiten your smile you could lose a couple pounds
if you want to live this life you better lose that wife do you need your friends around?
And I said no that’s not me.
The biggest things in life are my friends and family.
And I like my jeans and my old t shirt and a couple extra pounds never really hurt
‘cause a country boy is all I’ll ever be ‘cause Hank taught me just how to stay alive
you’ll never catch me out the house without my 9 or 45.
I got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck
and my idea of heaven is chasing white tail buck
don’t cha know I know can survive
now two flags fly above my land and really they sum up how I feel.
One is the colors that fly high and proud
the red the white the blue
the other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made
Don’t Tread on Me is what is says and I’ll take that to my grave because this is me
proud to be American and strong in my beliefs.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again because i never needed Government to hold my hand
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again because my family’s always fight and died to save this land and a country boy is all I’ll ever be.
