  • Yeah, life is like a jukebox, just push play
    Not everybody's first verse sounds the same
    But we all get born and we all get raised
    Whether it's some boondocks or Marina Del Rey
    Everybody turns wild when you're sixteen
    Slow roll, big timin' on main street
    Everybody's got holes in their blue jeans
    If you bought 'em that way or not

    Turn it up and sing along
    We all work 'til the daylight's gone
    We all knock off the edge around five
    Fall in love from a kiss on Friday night
    And we've all had a broken heart
    We've all closed down a few good bars
    Take a look around, y'all, tell me I'm wrong
    Ain't the whole wide world just one big country song?
    Just one big country song

    Yeah, well who gon' try to find some water when it's hot? (When it's hot)
    Whether it's a pontoon, tube or a yacht (yeah)
    Who ain't got a dog that they love like a brother? (I do)
    And who ain't ever tasted better cookin' than their mother? (Not me)
    Who ain't got a story to tell?
    And who ain't made it through some hell?
    Who don't love somebody, don't miss somebody?
    If you're down, sing it with somebody

    Turn it up and sing along
    We all work 'til the daylight's gone
    We all knock off the edge around five
    Fall in love from a kiss on Friday night
    And we've all had a broken heart
    We've all closed down a few good bars
    Take a look around, y'all, tell me I'm wrong
    Ain't the whole wide world just one big country song?
    Yeah, it's just one big country song

    Not everybody knows the words to "Mama Tried"
    A city boy, country boy, yeah, we all just tryna survive
    So raise 'em high

    Turn it up and sing along
    We all work 'til the daylight's gone
    We all knock off the edge around five
    Fall in love from a kiss on Friday night
    And we've all had a broken heart
    We've all closed down a few good bars
    Take a look around, y'all, tell me I'm wrong
    Ain't the whole wide world just one big country song?
    It's just one big country song
    Yeah, we all live in one big country song

    Yeah, it's just one big country song Writer/s: Ashley Glenn Gorley, Jesse Vernon Frasure, Michael Wilson Hardy
