Now 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 a man

But 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 1200 off an old dirt road 'and 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 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?" 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 shirts 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 bucks

And as a country boy I know 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 ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made

Don't Tread on Me is what it 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 cause I've never needed Government to hold my hand

And I've said it before and but I'll say it again cause my family's always fought and died to save this land and a country boy is all I'll ever be.

I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family, I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it has to come through me, that should be all of our attitudes, cause this is America, and a country boys good enough for me, son
