  • You can trade that pickup for a brand new Cadillac
    Slap you on that custom Gucci suit and ditch that camo hat
    You can move from the boondocks to Beverly Hills
    Drop a little hip0hop in the boombox, but still

    You can't hide red
    Don't you know we were born this way
    You can't hide red
    You can see it in everything
    Yeah, like the way we walk, the way we talk
    It's the down-home way we raised
    Don't ever wanna, ain't ever gonna change
    You can't hide red
    With that twang when we sang
    You can't hide red
    Yeah, we smoke and we drink
    You can't hide red

    You might catch us holding doors, sayin' grace and thank you, Lord
    For the good times and the good life we all live, amen
    So what if we are backwards, just because you talkin' faster
    Hell, you ain't got no tabaccer in your lip

    You can't hide red
    Don't you know we were born this way
    You can't hide red
    You can see it in everything
    Yeah, like the way we walk, the way we talk
    It's the down-home way we raised
    Don't ever wanna, ain't ever gonna change
    You can't hide red
    With that twang when we sang
    You can't hide red
    Yeah, we smoke and we drink
    You can't hide red

    You can move from the boondocks to Beverly Hills
    Drop a little hip-hop in the boombox, but still

    You can't hide red
    Don't you know we were born this way
    You can't hide red
    You can see it in everything
    Yeah, like the way we walk, the way we talk
    It's the down-home way we raised (down-home way we raised)
    Don't ever wanna, ain't ever gonna change (change)
    You can't hide red (red)
