Chicken Fried

Album: The Foundation (2008)
Charted: 20
  • You know I like my chicken fried
    Cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio on

    Well I was raised underneath the shade of a Georgia pine
    And that's home you know
    Sweet tea pecan pie and homemade wine
    Where the peaches grow
    And my house it's not much to talk about
    But it's filled with love that's grown in southern ground
    And a little bit of chicken fried

    Cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio up
    I like to see the sunrise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most
    Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
    There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I've come to know
    So if you agree have a drink with me
    Raise you glasses for a toast
    To a little bit of chicken fried

    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio up
    I like to see the sunrise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    I thank god for my life
    And for the stars and stripes
    May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
    Salute the ones who died
    The ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice
    All the things we love
    Like our chicken fried

    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio up
    I like to see the sunrise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of a precious child
    And know a mother's love

    Getcha a little chicken fried
    And cold beer on a Friday night
    A pair of jeans that fit just right
    And the radio up
    I like to see the sunrise
    See the love in my woman's eyes
    Feel the touch of my precious child
    And know a mother's love Writer/s: Wyatt Durrette, Zac Brown
