"How Bout You?" as written by Brett Beavers, Eric Church and Brandon Church....
I know where I come from
How 'bout you?
I don't need baggy clothes,
Or rings in my nose to be cool.
The scars on my knuckles,
Match these scuffs on these cowboy boots.
An' there's a whole lot more like me
How 'bout you?

I punch the clock tryin' to make it to the top
How 'bout you?
I ain't got no blue-blood trust fund,
I can dip in to.
Yeah, I wish Uncle Sam would give a damn,
About the man who's collar's blue.
But if he don't, hell, I'll make it on my own:
How 'bout you?

An' how 'bout you?
Do you feel the way I do?
To tell the truth,
I think we're the chosen few.
But that's just me
How 'bout you?

I still say: "Yes, Ma'am" to my Momma
How 'bout you?
If I shake your hand, look you in the eye,
You can bet your ass, it'll be the truth.
I cover my heart with my hat,
When they fly that Red, White and Blue,
Just like my Daddy taught me
How 'bout you?

An' how 'bout you?
Do you feel the way I do?
To tell the truth,
I think we're the chosen few.
But that's just me
Well, how 'bout you?

I like my country rockin'
How 'bout you?
Just put me on a stage, man,
Turn it up an' I'll turn it loose.
Yeah, give me a crowd that's redneck an' loud,
We'll raise the roof.
Yeah, I might just stay all night long.

How 'bout you?
Do you feel the way I do?
To tell the truth,
I think we're the chosen few.
An' how 'bout you?
Do you feel the way I do?
'Cause, man, I know where I come from:
How 'bout you?

    General CommentSong's basically a semi-patriotic reminder about the roots and qualities of a 'country boy' who's hard-working, respectful and always keeps his word. It's also a kind of protest (if you can call it that), or a mockery towards music and folks nowadays.

    Look at the lines, "I don't need baggy clothes or rings in my nose to be cool". I think it's referring modern gangsters, dealers and back-alley thugs nowadays. Yes, it is a stereo-typed description, but what else can you use to describe them in a familiar way? He sings about this again in the song, "Homeboy".

    Maybe it could also represent modern hip-hop, rap or any such kind of music nowadays that just 'look' cool instead of sounding good. He says that he likes his country rockin', maybe it's a take on how country music nowadays is straying from its roots.

    But well, you can tell what the song is at its heart - how people are losing their values in life.
