Songtekst:

[Verse 1]
People talkin’ ’bout what is and what ain’t country
What gives ’em a right to wear a pair of beat-up boots?
Is it the size of your tires and your fires, or your wild ass buddies?
Well, give me a minute, let me hit you with some hometown truth

[Pre-Chorus]
You could be a cowboy on the Texas plain
Or a plowboy waitin’ on the rain
We’re all a little different, but we’re all the same
Everybody doin’ their own thing

[Chorus 1]
I got my dirt road cred when I was twelve
On a no cab tractor hauling them bales
Backing in boats, fishing limb lines
Running bird dogs through the Georgia pines
Step side cover down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, and that was us
It might not’ve been you, but I can’t judge
Just be proud of what makes you country

[Verse 2]
Does it run in your blood?
Did it come from your daddy and mama?
Were you converted by an Alabama song on the radio?
That feels so right
Did you lock eyes with a little green-eyed girl from Jackson?
Tell me what got ya, I just gotta know

[Chorus 2]
Me, I got my Sunday learning in a live oak church
Silver Queen corn in a backyard dirt
Waiting for the fall to finally come along
So I can grab my gun and get my outside on
Step side cover down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, and that was us
It might not’ve been you, but I can’t judge
Just be proud of what makes you country

[Brdge]
Might be from a city or a little farm town
Whatever kind of square that you drove around
Do you wear it on your sleeve or keep it deep down?
You know you gotta let it out

[Chorus 1]
I got my dirt road cred back when I was twelve
On a no cab tractor hauling them bales
Backing in boats, fishing limb lines
Running bird dogs through them Georgia pines
Step side cover down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, and that was us
It might not’ve been you, but I ain’t judging
And just be proud of what makes you country
Whatever makes you country

[Outro]
You do your kinda country
They doing they kind of country
I do my kind of country
Whatever makes us country

Over Sophomore

Mijn nickname is Sophomore en I'm in my early forties (fifties inmiddels) zoals dat zo mooi heet. Ik kwam in aanraking met country muziek tijdens een vakantie naar de US of A. Ik luisterde veel naar een countrystation op de radio en weer thuisgekomen bleek dit radiostation ook via internet te beluisteren te zijn. Daar luisterde (en luister) ik veel naar en heb ik ook vrijwel alle artiesten en bands die je op deze website vindt, leren kennen. Waarom Sophomore vraag je je misschien af. De verklaring is dat ik wel wat verstand heb van country maar nog een heleboel kan en wil leren. Ik ben dus geen freshman meer maar heb nog wel een groot deel van mijn "studie" voor de boeg. Vandaar Sophomore, spreek uit als [sofmoor].
