Just the good ol' boys
Never meaning no harm
Beats all you ever saw
Been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was born

Straightening the curves
Flattening the hills
Someday the mountain might get 'em
But the law never will

Making their way
Any way they know how
That's just a little bit more
Than the law will allow

I'm a good ol' boy
You know my mama loved me
But she don't understand
They keep a showin' my hands
And not my face on

TV, verse from the movie
Just the good ol' boys
Wouldn't change if they could
Fightin' the system like a true
Modern day Robin Hood
