Oh Arkansas, the Diamond of the South
Oh Arkansas, won't put a bad taste in your mouth
And no matter what they say about the A-R-K
It'll always be home sweet home to me

    General CommentThis song is located 9 minutes into the album version of Fireworks, and there are some freestyle verses I can't understand too well, so if anyone manages to type them up I'll add them to the lyrics

    General CommentHere is the dialogue at the beginning.

    Buddy: Hey, Brother.

    Bubba: How you doin’, man?

    Buddy: Good, Bubba. Keepin’ it real. How’re you?

    Bubba: I’m alright, a little down.

    (Chorus in background)

    Buddy: What’s keepin’ you down, bro?

    Bubba: I just don’t got that Southern Thunder anymore, man.

    Buddy: No… no way. Where’d it go?

    Bubba: I lost my way.

    Buddy: You want me to help you find it?

    Bubba: I’d love that, Buddy.

    Buddy: Hold on, I got a little something here in my pocket.

    Bubba: What you got there?

    Buddy: I don’t know, but it’s going jangada-langada-lang. Let me tell you a little story there, bud. Give you some healing in life.

    General Comment-chorus-
    oh arkansas, diamond of the south
    oh arkansas, won't put a bad taste in your mouth
    and no matter what they say about the a-r-k
    you'll always be home sweet home to me.

    i got some fishin lure and some bait in my box
    i got a zipto 33 and i catch fish
    put them waders on my legs
    hey they're up to my chest
    put that lure in the water
    and i catch a big bass


    i got an oar and a boat
    i got the ??? kevin and the trev
    and i got my number one best friend in the world mark lee towlensend?
    all i need is a worm and my fishin' rod
    okay, arkansas


    so i like to widdle a little
    skip a few rocks
    dip my legs in the water
    feel them mugs ticklin my little feet
    slowly put my hand in some gravel
    and what did i get
    a big catfish givin me a little bite


    the other day, i shot a squirrel
    that's when i found,
    man squirrel skins is tough
    the other day, ohh i shot a deer
    and i ate him up ohh
    into my belly and it was good


    well i hop in my truck
    and spin the tires and take all the cows out to pasture.
    put on my boots
    and go to war
    Bin Ladin i'm coming, i'm coming for you


    i think that's pretty close
