  • I wear a greasy ball cap
    I like my shirt un-tucked
    I spend Saturdays working on my truck
    I don't like to fight
    But I ain't scared to bleed
    Most don't mess with a guy like me
    'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work
    Our best blue jeans have Skoal rings
    We wear our boots to church
    So rough around the edges
    It's hard to believe that girls like you
    Love guys like me

    Your daddy worked at the bank
    Mine worked on cars
    You went to college
    I pulled graveyard
    You must have had your pick
    Of all the trust fund types
    But you came back to me and only God knows why
    'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work
    Our best blue jeans have Skoal rings
    We wear our boots to church
    So rough around the edges
    It's hard to believe that girls like you
    Love guys like me

    Now there's a lot of guys like me out there
    In a lot of little towns
    And tellin' all our buddies we won't ever settle down
    We say that's just the way we are, and the way we'll always be
    So God sends girls like you for guys like me
    Thank God there's girls like you for guys like me Writer/s: DERIC RUTTAN, ERIC CHURCH
