  • We're scattered out
    On rural routes everywhere
    From California to the Carolines

    Flag wavin', Jesus prayin'
    Mama lovin', don't care
    Redneck, white shirt, blue jean kind

    Folks like us like to live a little
    Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
    Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
    Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
    This ole' world ain't got enough
    Boot wearin', God fearin'
    Folks like us

    With Folgers in a Thermos
    At the door with a brown bag
    Steel toes on the go
    With the risin' sun

    Even when the wind
    Ain't at our backs
    We don't quit, won't quit
    'Till the job gets done

    Folks like us like to live a little
    Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
    Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
    Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
    This ole' world ain't got enough
    Boot wearin', God fearin'
    Folks like us

    We hang out, just a little too much
    Hey, the way it is now, ain't the way it was
    A whole lot of real and a little less fake
    Yeah, I guess that makes

    Folks like us
    Yeah, folks like us

    Folks like us like to live a little
    Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
    Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
    Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
    This ole' world ain't got enough
    Boot wearin', God fearin'
    Folks like us

    No there just ain't enough
