  • I'm like a locomotive
    I don't run out of steam
    I'm headed toward the reservoir and I'm gonna need a drink
    I ain't no Napa Valley
    New York City seems okay
    I'm a little bit more Tennessee and there's whiskey in my veins

    I'm sweet tea sippin' on a front porch, sittin'
    While my hubby fries chicken and I'm pickin' these strings
    Been down on my luck, but I ain't givin' up
    Well, I totaled his truck, but he loves me just the same
    Mm, he gives me wings, oh, he gives me wings

    I ain't no grand piano
    I play a little out of tune
    I spent all of my glory days in a honky-tonk saloon

    Now I'm sweet tea sippin' on a front porch, sittin'
    While my hubby fries chicken and I'm pickin' these strings
    I've been down on my luck, but I ain't givin' up
    Got a heart like a truck, I'm a hummingbird, ready to sing
    Mm, he gives me wings, oh, he gives me wings

    I'm sweet tea sippin' on a front porch, sittin'
    While my hubby fries chicken and I'm pickin' these strings
    I've been down on my luck, got a heart like a truck
    So I ain't givin' up, I'm a hummingbird, ready to sing
    Mm, he gives me wings, oh, he gives me wings
    Oh, he gives me wings, mm, he gives me wings Writer/s: Ashley Lauren Monroe, K. S. Rhodes, Miranda Lambert
