"Guys Like Me" as written by Deric Ruttan and Eric Church....
I wear a greasy ball cap
I like my shirt un-tucked
I spend Saturdays working on my truck
I don't like to fight
But I ain't scared to bleed
Most don't mess with a guy like me
'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work
Our best blue jeans have Skoal rings
We wear our boots to church
So rough around the edges
It's hard to believe that girls like you
Love guys like me

Your daddy worked at the bank
Mine worked on cars
You went to college
I pulled graveyard
You must have had your pick
Of all the trust fund types
But you came back to me and only God knows why
'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work
Our best blue jeans have Skoal rings
We wear our boots to church
So rough around the edges
It's hard to believe that girls like you
Love guys like me

Now there's a lot of guys like me out there
In a lot of little towns
And tellin' all our buddies we won't ever settle down
We say that's just the way we are, and the way we'll always be
So God sends girls like you for guys like me
Thank God there's girls like you for guys like me

    General CommentJust like me and my girl.

    I grew up in the middle of nowhere. 1 redlight.
    She grew up in the city. Loves to shop. The country does not excite her st all...

    But, "thank god there's girls like you, for guys like me!!"...

    Don't know how she does it, but she does. She's a special girl!

    General Commenti LOVE this song. goldengramm, your right, this is my future husband too, haha.

    the song is about a guy who has had to work for everything hes ever got and how he wasnt raised in a rich home. but that well-off girls go for 'guys like him' more often than not. VERY NICE.

    General CommentNo matter what kind of guy you are, there is always a girl that would dig you. I got so obsessed with this song when it was released, I downloaded it the first time I heard it and every sense heard it over a hundred times!

    MemoryThis is like me and my girlfriend. We come from two completely separate social classes. Her family is rich, and I'm from normal middle class family. Dad has been laid off for a year and a half, money is hard to come by.I got to work for everything i get. She could've went for a rich guy she went to school with or some guy her family knows but, chose me.
