"I Use What I Got" as written by and Brett/collins James....
Nobody ever thought I'd make it in this town
They all said I should leave my truck, pack, and turn right back around
They said I didn't have what it takes
I needed money and a pretty face
But I just look at them and say...

I use what I got
Take what I get
Until I ain't got nothin' left
Then I give it some more
Keep on climbing up that mountain
Keep truckin' along, work up a sweat
Past every "no" after "no" after "no" till I get a "yes"
I don't worry about what I've done
I use what I got, yeah

I still got big dreams and a strong heart
I got a lot of real good friends who helped me get this far
I still got a lot of miles to go
It's a winding, uphill road
But I'll get there the only way I know...

I use what I got
Take what I get
Until I ain't got nothin' left
Then I give it some more
Keep on climbing up that mountain
Keep truckin' along, work up a sweat
Past every "no" after "no" after "no" till I get a "yes"
I don't worry about what I've done
I use what I got, yeah

Keep on rollin' along, doin' my best
Past every "no" after "no" after "no" till I get a "yes"
I don't worry about what I'm not
No, no, I don't worry about what I'm not
I use what I got, yeah

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious considering it's a country song :). Basically, he isn't an ideal country singer but he does the best he can. Great song.
