North Louisiana on a saturday night
I was sittin in the glow of the dashboard lights
Ill never forget i was 6 years old
When i heard comin out of my daddys radio
Come out of my seat and said 'son of a gun'
Daddy said naw that's the opry son

Chorus:
I heard the crowd start screamin
And i started dreamin
Of one day runnin
With a hillbilly band

Bought a gitar, learned a few chords
Found a few guys and a bveat up ford
Pretty girls would come from miles around
Like bees to honey to hear that sound
All we could afford was bread and mayonaise
Living for the moment when wed hit that stage

Chorus:
I heard the crowd start screamin
And i started dreamin
Of one day runnin
With a hillbilly band

I came to Nashville, they liked my songs
I got a bus-45 feet long
Bought a house to put a gold record on the wall
Funny thing is im hardly there at all
The money the cars, you can have that stuff
Just give me what I love

Chorus 2:
To hear the crowd start screamin
To the song that im singin
The one about runnin
With a hillbilly band
