Tearin’ Up The Country

Lyrics:

Playing a pavilion on the outskirts of town
Playing where my roller derby rolls
Just a part time music man, A nobody at the plant
I’m tearing Up The Country with a song

Mom and Papa told me "Son, you gotta go to school
Only way to make the family proud
I paid no attention, left my books at home
Rather play my music real loud

Tearing Up The Country with a song
Tearing Up The Country with a song
I paid no attention, left my books at home
Rather play my music real loud

Play it loud, now! Woo!

Ran into a dry spell, seemed nowhere to go
Good luck turned the tide, I’m on my way
I remember loading big trucks when the summer sun was hot
You know I could still be there, but I’m not

Tearing Up The Country with a song
Tearing Up The Country with a song
I remember loadin’ big trucks when the summer sun was hot
You know I could still be there, but I’m not
