Humble And Kind

Album: Damn Country Music (2015)
Charted: 30
  • You know there's a lot that glows by the front door
    Don't forget the keys under the mat
    Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
    Go to church 'cause your momma says to
    Visit grandpa every chance that you can
    It won't be a waste of time
    Always stay humble and kind

    Hold the door say please say thank you
    Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
    I know you got moutains to climb but
    Always stay humble and kind
    When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
    When the work you put in is realized
    Let yourself feel the pride but
    Always stay humble and kind

    Don't expect a free ride from no one
    Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why
    Bitterness keeps you from flying
    Always stay humble and kind
    Know the difference between sleeping with someone
    And sleeping with someone you love
    I love you ain't no pick up line so
    Always stay humble and kind

    Hold the door say please say thank you
    Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie
    I know you got moutains to climb but
    Always stay humble and kind
    When those dreams you're dreamin' come to you
    When the work you put in is realized
    Let yourself feel the pride but
    Always stay humble and kind

    When it's hot, eat a root beer, a popsicle
    Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
    Let that summer sun shine
    Always stay humble and kind
    Don't take for granted the love this life gives you
    When you get where you're goin'
    Don't forget turn back around
    Help the next one in line
    Always stay humble and kind
