Gretchen Wilson – Pocahantas Proud lyrics

I was raised in Pocohantas Illinois
Everybody thought of me as one of the boys
Cause I'd run with a crowd that was tough
At fifteen I was tending Big O's Bar
I'd sing till two am for half a tip jar
Spent my youth singing truth, paying dues

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my home town
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let em dow
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahantas proud

I knocked on every door on music row
But they looked down at me and said "girl go back home"
You ain't got what we need in this town

But they couldn't whup the fighting side of me
You know where I come from we don't give up easily
Overnight took all my life to be found

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let em down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahantas proud

At twenty seven I had baby Grace
I was born again when I saw her sweet face
And I knew she was the greatest thing I'd ever do

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let em down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahantas proud
