"Arkansas" as written by and Ferraby Chase Lizarraga....
I went to Arkansas to find me some kin
They say my daddy's getting out of the pen
My mama told me I'm like him, a temper like a fire
A frame just like a wire

And if this was real, if this was what I need
If this was home, if this was everything
You'd run away, you wouldn't stay
If this was real
So don't be true, now don't be true

You'll be my alibi and I'll be your pearl
Your appaloosa has grown up from a girl
You'll look at me like families do and I'll look back at you
Fit you like a shoe

And if this was real, if this was what I need
If this was home, if this was everything
You'd run away, you wouldn't stay
If this was real
So don't be true, now don't be true

I went to Arkansas to find me some kin
I've be a raindog as long as I've been
Save for this ring of glass and tin
The skin around my bones is all that I call home
