Colt Ford – Country Thang lyrics

(Feat. Eric Church/Dallas Davidson)

Shotgun shack on the edge of town
It's where I'll be when the sun goes down
Big money bird dog barkin' out back
Wouldn't trade him in for a Cadillac

County wanna pave my ole dirt road
Went to the courthouse, said "hell no"

It's a country thing, it's a fish on the string
Mary Jane chompin' on a chicken wing
It's a tire swing on a river bank
It's the way we talk, it's the way we sing
It's either in your blood, or it ain't
It's a country thang

Known my girl since she was fourteen
She's the first runner up to the Hart County Cotton Queen
She was raised on corn bread, purple hull peas
She turns them heads at the feed 'n' seed

She rides in the middle of my four wheel drive
Got a honey hole way back in the pines

It's a country thing, it's some cut-off jeans
Paintin' her toes on the porch swing
Sweet like sugar cane, come a good rain
Make a little love while the tin roof sings
It's either in your blood, or it ain't
It's a country thang

It's a country thing, barefoot and crazy
Fried green tomatos and some sawmill gravy
Take pride in workin' hard for a livin'
Pray before meals, it feels good givin'

Back to the needy, greedy is not us
Thank God for it even if it ain't much
That's we does it down here in the mud
What else can I say, y'all, it's in my blood
It's either in your blood, or it ain't

(That's how we does right here)
Oh, it's either in your blood or it ain't
(C'mon, y'all)
It's a country thang

It's a country thang
It's a country thang

It's just a country thang
