Country Boys Like Me

Album: This Ole Boy (2012)
  • Spent summers throwin’ brim in a red Ice chest
    Gave my heart to Jesus in my Sunday best
    Southern rock rolled from my radio each night
    When Freebird fell out of the sky
    Felt like I’d lost an old friend of mine

    Saw hate in livin’ color on my TV
    Learned black kids bled red just like me
    Scott’s Playboy opened my eyes one afternoon
    I noticed Jenny’s eyes were blue
    And Mama prayed for my every move

    When I stop and remember
    Each moment stands alone
    When I see ’em all together
    I’ve been blessed I know
    I guess the Lord must love a dirt road
    Faded barns and shaded creeks
    And I’ve come to think that He
    Loves country boys like me

    A slow sunset can make my day
    Love’s more than a yes in a Chevrolet
    John 3:16 still brings me to my knees
    Yeah, I stand here at peace
    Knowing who I’ll always be

    When I stop and remember
    Each moment stands alone
    When I see ‘em all together
    I’ve been blessed I know
    I guess the Lord must love a dirt road
    Faded barns and shaded creeks
    And I’ve come to think that He
    Loves country boys like me

    I guess the Lord must love a dirt road
    Faded barns and shaded creeks
    And I’ve come to think that He
    Loves country boys like me
    Lord keep smiling down on me
    And all them country boys like me Writer/s: MONTY CRISWELL, TIMOTHY MENZIES
