Well i grew up down an old dirt road in a town you wouldn't know
My pops picked the place up for fifteen hundred bucks back in nineteen sixty-four
My grandfather was a drinker, back in the day he put 'em down
But a war is known to change a man and the whiskeys known to change a man

But that's not me
I rarely drink from the bottle
But i'll smoke a little weed
I still live in the sticks where you wouldn't go
In a town of twelve hundred off an old dirt road
and a country boy is all i'll ever be
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/aaron_lewis/country_boy_crd.html ]
Now it's been twelve years since i sold my soul to the devil in LA
He said sign here on the dotted line and your songs they all will play
He set up shop on sunset, he put me up in the marquee
He said you wanna sell a million records boy, you better listen to me
He said change your style, widen your smile, you could lose a couple pounds
and if you wanna live this life you'd better lose that wife, do you need you're friends around?
and I said

No that's not me
Because the biggest things in life are your friends and family
and I like my jeans and my old t-shirt
and a couple extra pounds never really hurt
'cause a country boy is all i'll ever be

'cause hank taught me just how to stay alive
You'll never catch me out the house without my nine or fourty-five
I've got a big orange tractor and a diesel truck and my idea of heavens chasing white 
and as a country boy, i know i can survive

Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel
One is the colors that fly high and proud, the red, the white and the blue
The other ones got a rattle snake, with a simple statement made
"Don't tread on me" is what it says and i'll take that to my grave because

This is me
I'm proud to be american and strong in my beliefs
and i've said it before, but i'll say it again
'cause i've never needed government to hold my hand
and i've said it before, but i'll say it again
'cause my familys always faught and died to save this land
and a country boy is all i'll ever be
