lyrics

You go and drag my name through the mud from states away
But when a child make a mess it don't much bother me
Red eyed and wild like a double wide serenade
You walk a mile in your own shoes call it strife and cry for praise

Well the grudge that you carry must be murder on your back
But over your friends and your wits its the only thing that seems to last
You bring a hunger to a table disguised as a diplomat
You may be willing but you ain’t able killing time in the final act

You say you don't like my songs
Hell I barely like my songs
But I hope they all sing along
Because this one's for you
You brought plenty of noise to that quiet town
Now they all want you to quiet down
Because it's hard to make a sound when there's nobody listening
So I'll have to sing just to get through

You say you don't like my songs
Hell I barely like my songs
But I hope they all sing along
Because this one's for you
The only thing you'd ever talk about
Is becoming the king of this town
But your crown rusted out so bad that she left you
And I know it's true because she left for me
