  • I don't buy that free lip service
    Suits and rich folks don't make me nervous, no
    But I respect the law and those below the clay
    And I don't answer to those who question
    My job, my lingo or my religion

    see I know well those are choices I made

    [Chorus]
    I take the high in the road
    Give the light of the load
    I live my life with passion and love
    I'm a man, not a fraction of

    Me and my friends tend to spend time
    Laughing at jokes with the same ol punch lines
    Still I wouldn't trade those wasted days
    Oh, that's right
    And I don't always learn my lesson
    Haven't left the best first impressions
    And my baby knows I'm stubborn and stuck in my ways

    [Chorus: x2]

    Aw, lets play
    The eagle flies with the right and left wings
    I'm partial to farmers with small town families
    No, I don't forget where I was born and raised
    And I don't claim to be a Rhodes scolar
    I'm rough on the edges, blue in the collar
    But I ain't alone, I'm feeling proud to say

    [Chorus: x2]

    I take the high in the road
    Give the light of the road, aw
    I live my life with passion and love
    I'm man not a fraction of
    I take the high in the road. Writer/s: Jerrod Lee Niemann
