  • I don't need a membership to validate
    The hard work I put in and the dues I paid
    Never been to good at just goin' along
    I guess I've always kind of been for the underdog

    Favors for friends will get you in and get you far
    Shouldn't be about who it is you know
    But about how good you are

    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club
    Cigars and handshakes, appreciate you but no thanks
    Another gear in a big machine don't sound like fun to me
    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club

    There's a million ways to dream and that's just fine
    Oh but I ain't losin' any sleep at night
    And if I end up goin' down in flames
    Well at least I know I did it my own way, hey

    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club
    Cigars and handshakes, appreciate you but no thanks
    Another gear in a big machine don't sound like fun to me
    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club

    Favors for friends will get you in and get you far
    But when did it become about who you know
    And not about how good you are?

    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club
    Cigars and handshakes, appreciate you but no thanks
    Another gear in a big machine don't sound like fun to me
    Don't wanna be a part of the good ol' boys club
    I don't wanna be a part of your good ol' boys club Writer/s: KACEY MUSGRAVES, LUKE LAIRD, NATALIE HEMBY
