  • Got an alright house and a pretty nice yard
    A screen door dog that stays on guard
    Got a buddy up the road that's got my back
    'Round here it ain't hard to find folks like that

    Got a gun and a Bible by my bed
    Try to live by the words in red
    I ain't got a lot but I got enough
    By God I believe, in God we trust

    That's why, why we live here
    Damn right, we ain't going anywhere
    Home of the brave, baseball, and cold beer
    It's pretty clear
    That's why we live here

    Right now there's a man serving overseas
    Seeing things he wished he didn't see
    Picture of his wife tucked in his vest
    Fighting a fight we ain't finished yet

    That's why, why we live here
    Damn right, we ain't going anywhere
    Home of the brave, baseball, and cold beer
    It's pretty clear
    That's why we live here, yeah

    Whether your road
    Is dirt or paved
    Red, white, and blue
    We're all the same

    That's why, why we live here
    Damn right, we ain't going anywhere
    Home of the brave, baseball, and ice cold beer
    It's pretty clear
    That's why we live here Writer/s: DALLAS DAVIDSON, HOUSTON PHILLIPS, TYLER FARR
