  • I met a guy on the red eye
    He spotted my guitar
    And said what do you do?
    I said, I sing for a living,
    Country music mixed with
    A little rock and a little blues
    He said I'm sorry
    But I've never been crazy
    'Bout that twang and trains and hillbilly thing
    What ever made you want to sing stuff like that?
    I just looked at him and laughed and said

    'Cause it's songs about me
    And who I am
    Songs about loving and living
    And good hearted women and family and God
    Yeah they're all just
    Songs about me
    Songs about me

    So I offered him tickets
    I said you'll see what I mean
    If you show up tonight
    He said I doubt you'll change my opinion
    I'll be kind of busy, but hey man, I'll try

    Then later on when we finished our songs
    About scars and cars and broken hearts
    I saw him, he was standing there
    Right next to the stage
    And he shouted
    Man you were right
    It was like you sang those

    Songs about me
    And who I am
    Songs about loving and living
    And good hearted women and family and God
    Yeah they're all just
    Songs about me
    Songs about me

    So I'll just keep on singing
    'Til I hear the whole world singing those

    Songs about me
    And who I am
    Songs about loving and living
    And good hearted women and family and God
    Yeah they're all just
    Songs about me

  • Daniel from Winchester, OhioOf course my former best friend Landon wrote the meaning for this song, he was way too obsessed with country music.
  • Tiana from Virginia Beach, VaTrace Adkins' voice is absolutely PERFECT for this. God, I love this music!
