  • I'm a ghost on the radio
    A needle on the vinyl
    A country boy survival
    The bottom of a bottle, yeah
    I'm a fightin' side of you and me
    And my heart's down in Tennessee

    And I sing songs about freight trains and prisons
    Heartaches and honky-tonks
    And cowboys and outlaws
    Good-hearted women
    Boots and straw hats
    All gone, just like that
    They can't even recognize me
    They used to call me country

    We used to have cool names like Willie and Waylon
    Merle and Hank
    We all stood together
    We sang and we drank
    Chased the white lines
    Night after night

    Singin' songs about freight trains and prisons
    Heartaches and honky-tonks
    And cowboys and outlaws
    Good-hearted women
    Boots and straw hats
    All gone, just like that
    They can't even recognize me
    They used to call me country

    Like an old violin
    Put away and never played again
    Paycheck and Cash
    Naw, they ain't comin' back

    They need songs about freight trains and prisons
    Heartaches and honky tonks
    And cowboys and outlaws
    Good-hearted women
    Boots and straw hats
    All gone, just like that
    Hell, you can't even recognize me
    They used to call me country
    They used to call me country
    I'm a thing of the past
    I'm a ghost on the radio Writer/s: Bart Butler, Jon Pardi, Joseph Driver III Williams
