CHORUS

Boy you know I’m from a small town
All of my friends we was raised here
We felt like we was caged in
Everyone making them plays here
I’m doing bout 90 on Washington Avenue
Baby I’m feeling amazing
I’m in blacked out Ford diesel truck and my boots is snakeskin

I’m a small town but I got big dreams
I’m a small town kid but I got real big dreams

VERSE

Do you know what it’s like to be young and lost and trapped in ya hometown
What goes ‘round comes ‘round, man I just wish that I knew what I know now
Seen people drop out, seen people locked up
Seen people move away and come right back
Seen people with affliction get too addicted
And turn into zombies just like that

It ain’t pretty 'round here
This ain’t what it’s like in the city 'round here
Some of us grew up in the hills, some grew up in the hood
Some grew up in the sticks round here
In a trailer park, off-road, back holler
Creek down where the double wides
Meet route 60 on the country side
Two hour drive to the other side to school

Play football, get good grades, and spend four years at the The U
ROTC, join the army, bleed red white and blue
Make like seven bucks an hour working fast food
Or stay out in them streets and maybe end up on the news

It’s crazy, type of shit we see daily
If ain’t bout money it ain’t in the conversation
Yea I’m here waiting someday we all gone make it make it
Guess I’ll keep praying for my whole generation

CHORUS

Boy you know I’m from a small town
All of my friends we was raised here
We felt like we was caged in
Everyone making them plays here
I’m doing bout 90 on Washington Avenue
Baby I’m feeling amazing
I’m in blacked out Ford diesel truck and my boots is snakeskin

I’m a small town but I got big dreams
I’m a small town kid but I got real big dreams

VERSE

Am I gonna die young and I gonna get old
Am I gonna see my grandkids grow up
Am I gonna stay here, am I gonna settle down
Am I gonna get famous and blow up
Am I gonna have to bury anymore of my friends
Is it ever gonna end
Am I ever gonna catch a break
Am I ever I gonna have enough money to spend

On a brand new truck and a big old house
I want a private lake out on the edge of town
I wanna pay off all my students loans and credit card debt
I wanna do all of the things that I ain’t done yet

I wanna pray for the families of the people that we lost along the way
For everybody overseas that’s fighting everyday
For everybody staying strong it’ll be okay
We just gotta have faith, I don’t what else to say

It’s crazy, type of shit we see daily
If ain’t bout money it ain’t in the conversation
Yea I’m here waiting someday we all gone make it make it
Guess I’ll keep praying for my whole generation

CHORUS

Boy you know I’m from a small town
All of my friends we was raised here
We felt like we was caged in
Don’t know why but we stayed here
I’m doing bout 90 on Washington Avenue
Baby I’m feeling amazing
I’m in blacked out Ford diesel truck and my boots is snakeskin

I’m a small town but I got big dreams
I’m a small town kid but I got real big dreams
