  • There's an old rural route two lane
    Take it out past where the radio just can't
    Past the river bridge with a rope swing
    And a mailbox painted all John Deere green

    The end of a bunch of gravel driveway
    Out here doing our own thing

    Out in the middle where the hard work meets hard living
    Out in the middle where we're grown 'til we're gone, God willing
    Just some good old boys and good old girls
    Hunting red dirt dreams in a concrete world
    Getting by on just a little, out in the middle

    Come Friday, we come undone
    Stay half lit like the high life neon
    Barely hanging on like sheds in a pole barn
    You can hear Hank clear 'cross the next farm

    City folk say we're crazy
    But they ain't never been way

    Out in the middle where the hard work meets hard living
    Out in the middle where we're grown 'til we're gone, God willing
    Just some good old boys and good old girls
    Hunting red dirt dreams in a concrete world
    Getting by on just a little

    Out in the middle of nowhere, that's where I wanna be
    In the old oak shade by the family graves
    With the southern ground on me

    Out in the middle where the hard work meets hard living
    Out in the middle where we're grown 'til we're gone, God willing
    Just some good old boys and good old girls
    Hunting red dirt dreams in a concrete world
    Getting by on just a little, out in the middle Writer/s: Benjamin Simonetti, Jonathan Singleton, Luke Combs, Zac Brown
