Everyday someone asks me what's my story
and what do I like to do
And everyday, for the most part, I only go so far;
I almost never tell the truth
'Cause the truth is behind me there's not much, to give up,
I like simple, not complicated

('Cause) I'm a small town kid, driven by rock music
And some honky-tonk, in the mix
I like whiskey in coke, a double to the top
A shot of cuervo now and then
I never ask for a lot, I'll never need much
A good-looking lady who can drive my truck
I'm not afraid to admit, I'm that small town kid

City lights, yellow cabs, Yankee hats, Suits and ties everywhere
These City folks, they look at me in my shirt and jeans,
they make me think I don't fit in here
Well the things they say they might be right, they might be so but one thing I know:
I can't change who I am

('Cause) I'm a small town kid, driven by rock music
And some honky-tonk, in the mix
I like whiskey in coke, a double to the top
A shot of cuervo now and then
I never ask for a lot, I'll never need much
A good-looking lady who can drive my truck
I'm not afraid to admit, I'm that small town kid

Mama don't you worry, they won't change me
A hundred thousand miles mean nothing to me

('Cause) I'm a small town kid, driven by rock music
And some honky-tonk, in the mix
I like whiskey in coke, a double to the top
A shot of cuervo now and then
I never ask for a lot, I'll never need much
A good-looking lady who can drive my truck
I'm not afraid to admit, I'm that small town kid
