"Chicken Fried" as written by and Zac Brown Wyatt Durrette....
You know I like my chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up

Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that's home you know
With sweet tea, pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow
And my house it's not much to talk about
But it's filled with love that's grown in southern ground
And a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I've seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love

And its funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind; this I've come to know
So if you agree have a drink with me
Raise your glasses for a toast
To a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I've seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love

I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
And the ones that gave their lives so we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love
Like our chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I've seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love

You know I like my chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I've seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman's eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother's love

    General CommentSo I'm not much of a fan of this song. The first time I heard it I laughed. Although I sing along every time it comes on. Its just so catchy!! What it's about? I'd say about loving the small things in life. And then it seems it randomly throws in Patriotism. Loving your soldiers and country, and thanking them for giving us freedom.

    General CommentAmymonkey, they are just talking about how the people overseas are fighting for our freedom to enjoy all the littl things. Like a sunrise, or a child. Or chicken, as silly as it sounds.

    Just like they are over there fighting for your freedom to make stupid comments.


    PS: I do like how the advertisement at the bottom of this page is for Tyson Chicken Nuggets! LOL

    General Commentamymonkey you are just taking his point in the wrong light. he is thinking them for everything, even the little things in our lives that we are priveleged enough to have but take for granted. zac brown must be a republican, don't ya think?

    General CommentThe meaning is pretty obvious.

    This is one of the only country songs I know of that it's fun to sing and dance to!
