Damn Country Music

Album: Damn Country Music (2015)
  • I packed it all on a whim
    Threw an old Hank cassette tape in
    Dad's '84 rusty Ford
    He swore we'd never make it
    I quit my job, let my momma down
    Broke an angel's heart on the way out of town
    Pulled my roots from the ground for
    The hum of wheels on the blacktop
    The strum of strings on a flat top
    It's a neon fever for a small-town dreamer
    Tells you everything you have that's worth losin'
    Damn country music
    You might get lost in the lights
    The things that keep you up all night
    Whiskey straight, three AM
    Chasin' songs in your head
    It's the sweetest highs, the lowest lows
    Needin' yes and hearin' no
    Just another so-so
    Believe me I know
    It's the hum of wheels on the blacktop
    The strum of strings on a flat top
    It'll take you, break you
    Damn sure make you
    Do things you never thought you'd be doing
    Damn country music
    When the money, the fame
    The lights on your name
    All fade away
    Well, you'll still be a slave to
    The hum of wheels on the blacktop
    The strum of strings on a flat top
    It's a neon fever for a small-town dreamer
    Tells you everything you have that's worth losing
    Damn country music
