  • I quit huntin' with my daddy
    Guess I didn't make the time
    And it's been a year since I've seen a deer
    Had a smallmouth on the line
    The other day I hooked a monster
    And as I reeled him in
    I thought, "Man, it feels good to be country again"
    Huh

    I spent way less time in Nashville
    And more time in L.A.
    My back home buddies, they quit callin'
    Thought I had too much on my plate
    But last night we cracked some cold beers
    And cranked Eric Church to ten
    Thought, "Man, it feels good to be country again"

    Yeah, I love me some California
    But it sure ain't Tennessee
    And my roots down there in Georgia
    Yeah, they started missin' me
    And I wouldn't change the things I've done
    Or the places that I've been
    Man, it feels good to be country again

    I traded in my Silverado
    Didn't need no four by four
    Tucked my boots in the back of the closet
    They didn't feel like me no more
    But I dug 'em out and slipped 'em on
    They've been on my feet since then
    Man, it feels good to be country again
    Oh

    Yeah, I love me some California
    But it sure ain't Tennessee
    And my roots down there in Georgia
    Yeah, they started missin' me
    And I wouldn't change the things I've done
    Or the places that I've been
    Man, it feels good to be country again

    I traded sunsets with my wife
    For hours on my phone
    And even when I was right beside her
    I still wasn't really home
    But last night we built a fire
    Watched the moonlight kiss her skin
    I thought, "Man, it feels good to be country again"
    Man, it feels good to be country again

    I saw the light, I found the way home
    Thank you, Lord, Amen
    Man, it feels good to be country again
