John Anderson – Takin' The Country Back lyrics

Goin' down to Muscle Shoals where the swamp water rhythm flows
Live the only way I know I'm just a common man
Headed down to Texas way where the honky tonk heroes play
Gonna find that lost highway that's where I'll make a stand

Takin' the country back it's high time we face the facts
Heart and soul slippin' through the cracks we're takin' the country back
Takin' the country back we're not sure just where it's at
We've got to get it back on track we're takin' the country back
[ guitar ]
Bright lights and limousines fame and fortune I have seen
Still searchin' for that dream it's callin' me back home
Down to earth where the music's real singin' bout what the people feel
Timeless truth now that's the deal we got to pass in on y'all

Yeah takin' the country back...
[ steel ]
Yeah takin' the country back...
Takin' the country on back
