For Some Ol Redneck Reason

Album: Off the Beaten Path (2013)
  • I love tearin' down some country road as the red sun's sinking down
    Nothing but corn and cotton fields for miles and miles around
    Down every twist and turn, there's another million dollar view
    Some folks might not see it
    But for some old redneck reason I do
    I still wear my beat up boots and my old worn out jeans
    I still say the blessing when I sit down to eat
    And you can bet I mind my manners every time my momma walks in the room
    Some folks don't think that matters
    But for some old redneck reason I do

    For some old redneck reason, sometimes I get the feelin'
    Maybe I give too much of it now
    I'm a little old fashion leanin', out of style and out of season
    But I reckon that's just the way I am

    Sometimes I lay here thinkin' ‘bout the good times that we had
    Wonder why it all went wrong or the night it all went bad
    And I probably shouldn't call you up, thinkin' I can patch things up with you
    Oh, but when I get to drinking, for some old redneck reason I do

    For some old redneck reason, sometimes I get the feelin'
    Maybe I give too much of it now
    I'm a little old fashion leanin', out of style and out of season
    But I reckon that's just the way I am (Aw, how you feel about it Charlie?)

    I was standing behind a couple teenage kids at a high school football game
    They didn't take their hats off when the anthem was played
    And I felt like jerkin a knot in their tail,
    For disrespecting that old Red, White and Blue
    Well now maybe I shouldn't get fightin' mad
    But for some old redneck reason I do Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
