Boots On

  • Man, I've been workin' too hard
    Ten hour days and I'm tired
    Damn this knuckle busted',
    Back breakin', no paying job
    Know where I'm goin' from here
    Hot headed women, cold beer
    Kick up my heels for a little while
    And do it country style

    In my dirty 'ole hat
    With my crooked little grin
    Granny beaded neck
    And these calloused hands
    And a muddy pair of jeans
    With that Copenhagen ring
    No need to change a thing, hey y'all
    I'm going out with my boots on

    How I keep catching her eye
    Man, I keep wondering why
    Ain't nothing special 'bout
    An "awe shucks" country boy
    Lord, she's sure lookin' good
    Like something from Hollywood
    She got me thinkin' that I just might
    Leave here with her tonight

    In my dirty 'ole hat
    With my crooked little grin
    Granny beaded neck
    And these calloused hands
    And a muddy pair of jeans
    With that Copenhagen ring
    No need to change a thing, hey y'all
    I'm going out with my boots on

    'Cause I am who I am and that's
    The man I'm gonna be, yeah
    And when the Lord comes callin',
    Well, he ain't gonna have
    To holler, y'all
    There'll be no trouble finding me

    In my dirty 'ole hat
    With my crooked little grin
    Granny beaded neck
    And these calloused hands
    And a muddy pair of jeans
    With that Copenhagen ring
    No need to change a thing, hey y'all
    I'm going out with my boots on

    With my boots on
    He's gonna take me home
    Lord, with my boots onWriter/s: Brandon Kinney, Randy Houser
