"Do You Know What That Is" as written by and Jim/worley Brown....
Work like a dog all day in the hay
Do you know what that is?
Five days work for one days pay
Do you know what that is?
Crops burnt up so pray for rain
And watch all your work go down the drain
It's enough to drive a man insane
Do you know what that is?

That's country man, that's the way it goes
A lot of folks never get down that road
But you read but if you don't sew
That's country man, you don't always win
But you don't give up and you don't give in
You keep on bouncing back again

Move to the city where you don't belong
Do you know what that is?
Bet your whole life on a pray and a song
Do you know what that is?
Big wigs sitting in a black leather chair
And he's your friend when the weather's fair
First sign of rain he's outta there
Do you know what that is?

That's country man, it's a poor boy's dream
Taking your first ride in a limousine
Look at yourself on the silver screen

That's country man, it's a ruthless game
It's here one day and gone the same
Everybody's looking for the next big thing
Hey that's OK I'll be alright
At least I can lay down to sleep at night
I don't need the hassle anyway

That's country man, that's the way it goes
A lot of folks never get down that road
But you read but if you don't sew
That's country man, you don't always win
But you don't give up and you don't give in
You keep on bouncing back again

That's country
Every feel like you could just explode
Do you know what that is?
And you lay it down and take the high road
