In a water tower town, everybody waves
Church doors are the only thing that's open on Sundays
Word travels fast, wheels turn slow
Yeah workin' hard and livin' right is the only life we know

Friday night football is king, sweet tea goes good with anything
Fireflies come out when the sun goes down
Nobody eats 'til you say Amen, and everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who from miles around, in a water tower town

Well your friend's a friend, and your word's your word
And our pickup trucks, they ain't just for looks, they're made for work
Corn grows high, crime stays low
There's little towns everywhere where everybody knows

Friday night football is king, sweet tea goes good with anything
And the girls come out, when the sun goes down
Nobody eats 'til you say Amen, and everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who from miles around, in a water tower town

Friday night football is king, sweet tea goes good with anything
Peace and quiet make such a beautiful sound
Nobody eats 'til you say Amen, and everybody knows your mom and them
You can see who loves who from miles around, in a water tower town

Yeeeaahh in a water tower town

    I dont actually live in a small southern town i live right outside in a half city half country town.. But most of my family live in little southern towns all over the country.. I'm rarely ever home, i"m always out at their houses cause i love it wayyy more than my house.. I am a true country person.. I wouldnt trade my life for anything... (:

    I think this song means that out in the sticks, country girls and boys work hard in the fields. Just like us country people should be. :)

    This is how most good country people live, you can really tell the difference from wanna be country folk and true country folk.

    The meaning of a southern life. It's a way of life, and the way we live it. God first, football is our life, and sweet tea is the only thing you drink with supper.
