First day in the USA from a desert combat zone
Just pray I can find my way Take Me Home Country Roads
5th gear no rear view mirror I’m gettin’ back to basics
Shot of Jack and I made it back to Friends In Low Places

Everything I need to know I learned from country music
I was born and raised in the southern ways from the day I learned to crawl
Every man I trust every girl I love every song I’ll ever sing
Thank God for country music it taught me everything

You Find Out Who Your Friends Are when you leave for a couple years
Do you build a brand new life or sit there cryin’ in your beer
They asked if every day there all I thought of was survivin’
Pretty soon I guess you start to Live Like You Were Dyin’

Everything I need to know I learned from country music
I was born and raised in the southern ways from the day I learned to crawl
Every man I trust every girl I love every song I’ll ever sing
Thank God for country music it taught me everything

Guitars and Cadillacs to DIVORCE
My ex’s down in Texas from Lucille to Jolene
Take this job and shove it killin’ time in guitar town
All my rowdy friends to Sunday mornin’ comin’ down
