Aaron Lewis Country Boy (acoustic version) Lyrics
sponsored linksNow I grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn't know.
My pops picked this place up for fifteen hundred bucks back in 1964.
My grand father was a drinker back in the day he put em down.
But a war is known to change a man, and the whiskeys known to change a man.
But thats not me.
I rarely drink from the bottle ,but I'll smoke a little weed.
I still live in the sticks where you wouldn't go in a town of 1200 off an old dirt road and a country boy is all I'll ever be.
and now it's been 12 years since I've sold my soul to the devil in L.A.
He said sign your name here on the dotted line and your songs they all will play.
He set up shop on Sunset
He put me up at the marquee
He said, You want to sell a million records boy, you better listen to me.
He said change your style, whiten your smile, you could loose a couple pounds.
If you want to live this life you better lose that wife, Do you need your freinds around? I said,
No thats not me.
The biggest things in life are my freinds and family.
And I like my jeans and my old T shirts and a couple extra pounds never really hurt, cause a country boy is all I'll ever be, cause Hank taught me just how to stay alive.
You'll never catch me out of the house without my 9 or 45.
I got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck and my idea of heaven chasing white tail bucks
and as a country boy I know can survive.
Now 2 flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel.
One is the colors that fly high and proud, the red the white the blue.
The other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made.
Don't treat on me is what it says and I'll take to that to my grave, because this is me.
I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs.
And I've said it before and I'll say it again cause I've never needed government to hold my hand
and I've said it before and but I'll say it again cause my families always fought and died to save this land and a country boy is all I'll ever be.
