He was never voted "Most Likely to Succeed"
But still he married Tammy Bell, the prettiest girl in all of Knox County
And his uncle got him on at Thompson's Tool and Die
And now he; s a foreman and he's home each night by five

Not Bad for a farmer's son
Pretty good for where he comes from
He's got a house full of love and a yard full of kids
A car, a truck, a fishin' boat and a dozen best friends
And he ain't the richest man in Illinois
But not bad, not bad for a good ole boy

He got his picture in the paper right on the front page
He's smilin' with a nine-point buck he took on openin' day
Just last summer he bulit a deck on the house
And a fiew the family down to Florida to meet Mickey Mouse

Not Bad for a farmer's son
Pretty good for where he comes from
He's got a house full of love and a yard full of kids
A car, a truck, a fishin' boat and a dozen best friends
And he ain't the richest man in Illinois
But not bad, not bad for a good ole boy

Well he's a little league coach and a junior college grad
A volunter fireman and a full-time dad

Not Bad for a farmer's son
Pretty good for where he comes from
He's got a house full of love and a yard full of kids
A car, a truck, a fishin' boat and a dozen best friends
And he ain't the richest man in Illinois
But not bad, not bad for a good ole boy
