Florida Georgia Line – Dirt lyrics

[Verse 1]
You get your hands in it plant your roots in it
Dusty head lights dance with your boots in it (dirt)
You write your name on it, spin your tires on it
Build your corn field, whiskey
Bonfires on it (dirt)
You bet your life on it

[Chorus]
Is that an old shade
Red roads clay you grew up on
That plowed up ground
That your dad
Damned his luck on
That post game party field
You circle up on
And when it rains
You get stuck on
Drift a cloud back
Behind county roads
That you run up
And mud on her jeans
That she peeled off
And hung up
Her blue eyed
Summer time smile
Looks so good that it hurts
Makes you wanna build
A 10 percent down
White picket fence house on this dirt

[Verse 2]
You've mixed some sweat with it
Taken a shovel to it
You've stuck some crosses and some painted
Goal posts through it (dirt)
You know you came from it (dirt)
And some day you'll return to

[Chorus]
This elm shade red rust clay
You grew up on
That plowed up ground
That your dad
Damned his luck on
That post game party field
You circle up on
And when it rains
You get stuck on
Drift a cloud back
Behind county roads
That you run up
And mud on her jeans
That she peeled off
And hung up
Her blue eyed
Summer time smile
Looks so good that it hurts
Makes you wanna build
A 10 percent down
White picket fence house on this dirt


[Bridge]
You know you came from it
Dirt
And some day you'll return to

[Chorus]
This elm shade red rust clay
You grew up on
That plowed up ground
That your dad
Damned his luck on
That post game party field
You circle up on
And when it rains
You get stuck on
Drift a cloud back
Behind county roads
That you run up
And mud on her jeans
That she peeled off
And hung up
Her blue eyed
Summer time smile
Looks so good that it hurts
Makes you wanna build
A 10 percent down
White picket fence house on this dirt

[Outro]
Makes you wanna build
A 10 percent down
White picket fence house on this dirt
You know you came from it
And some day you'll return to it

    Most people think that southerners are weird, but I feel like this illustrates the mindset perfectly. It's a fierce pride, spesifically of home. The red clay was a perfect example, as it is signiture to Georgia. The "dirt" around here is as natural as the pine trees, and yet it makes you feel a certain way. It is almost a part of who you are.
