letra de country boy – aaron lewis

country boy

well i grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn’t know
my pops picked the place up for 1500 bucks back in 1964

my grandfather was a drinker back in the day he put ’em down
but a war is known to change a man and the whiskey is known to change a man

but, that’s not me
i rarely drink from the bottle but i 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

now it’s been 12 years since i 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 wanna sell a million records boy you better listen to me”

he said “change your style, whiten your smile, you could lose a couple of pounds
and if you want to live this life, you better lose that wife, do you need your friends around?”

i said, no that’s not me
cause the biggest things in life are your friends 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 the house without my 9 or 45

i got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck
and my idea of heaven is chasing whitetail bucks
and as a country boy you know i can survive

now two 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 rattlesnake with a simple statement made
“don’t tread on me” is what it says and i’ll take 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 but i’ll say it again
cause i’ve never needed government to hold my hand
and i’ve said it before but i’ll say it again
cause my family has always fought and died to save this land
and a country boy is all i’ll ever be

i love my country, i love my guns, i love my family
i love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it
has to come through me, that should be all our att*tudes
’cause this is america and a country boy is good enough for me son
