Now I grew up down an old dirt road In a town you wouldn't know My pop's picked a place up for fifteen hundred bucks Back in 1964 My grandfather was a drinker Back in the day he put him down But a war is known to change a man And the whiskey's known to change a man No that's not me I rarely drink from the bottle but I'll smoke a little weed I still live in the sticks where you wouldn't go In a town of twelve hundred off an old dirt road And a country boy is all I'll ever be Now its been twelve years since I 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 shop 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 I said no that's not me Cuz the biggest things in life are your friends and family And I like my jeans and my old t-shirts And a couple extra pounds never really hurt Because a country boy is all I'll ever be Cuz 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 tracker and a diesel truck My idea of heaven is chasing wild tail bucks And as a country boy I know I can survive Now two flags fly above my land That really sum up how I feel One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue The other one's got a rattlesnake 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 I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs And I've said it before but I'll say it again Because I never need a government to hold my hand And I've said it before but I'll say it again Because my family's always fought and died to save this land And a country boy is all I'll ever be
