Country TRUE

26 Oct

It’s a heart’s cry

it’s real life

@ the core of you…

You find country true

=

My brother’s in the army now.

I hope we get to be friends

Before he’s deployed from fort bliss

& I never see him again.

=

My mother drinks sometimes

Though, she’ll always deny it’s too much

Like mother like daughter,

We both need to quit that stuff…

=

My older sister was just hitched to a lad from conneticut

& I’ll be darned if she ever gets to see the sunshine

she says she’s happy with him… but she still cries…

A Texas girl held captive by love in a prison of grey skies…

=

When the truth is too hard to say it

& you aint the kind to lie.

When you can’t find another way to do it

So, you just fall down & cry…

=

but you gotta be honest

so you pick up your guitar

those are the songs

that come straight from your heart….

=

America aint what it used to be

Parking tickets aint help nobody.

If my brother dies in war,

I aint too proud to be American anymore

=

When you get too honest

To even tweek the truth

Then maybe you should try writing

Some country music too…

=

It’s a heart’s cry

it’s real life

@ the core of you…

You find country true
