    Alright, everybody, I don't remember this being posted before, so here we go....every single person on here, I know, has a song that describes them perfectly. It could be anywhere from, "Amazing Grace," to "I'm gonna miss her (the fishing song)" Mine's, "You do your thing(I'll do mine)," by Montgomery Gentry. "Put me on a mountain...way back in the back woods...put me on a lake....with a bigun on the line....put me 'round the campfire, cookin' somethin', I just cleaned, you do your thing I'll do mine..." Is how it starts off. Goes on to say, "I ain't tradin' in my famiy's safety, just to save on a little gas....I'll pray to god, any place any time....if I don't get my feel on life, I ain't gonna blame no one but me....you do your thing, I'll do mine...." Great song. So, what is everybody else's on here? Lemme in on the details! And NO ONE LINERS, TEA!!!! LMAO!

    Redd,
    There is also a song by Goose Creek Symphony, by almost the same name. It's called "Do Your Thing".

    I guess "Words Of Earnest" by GCS, or well it could be lots of songs. Life is an adventure. Each day is different. Heck if I know. That's why I change my signature every so often. LOL

    Y'all take care.

    i guess mine would be "Friends in low places" since I came to the BOC lol JK guys don't shoot. "Song of the South" are an old gospel song "Hush Somebodies Calling My name' would fit my life pretty well

    Good thread....

    Mine would be Van Zants song, Help Sombody. I really enjoy this song.



    Well, Grandaddy was a hillbilly scholar, blue collar of a man.
    He came from the school where you didn't need nothin',
    If you couldn't make it with your own two hands.
    He was backwoods, backwards, used words like:
    "No Sir," "Yes, Ma'am," "By God," "Be darned,"
    "Hell yeah, I'm American."
    And all the years he walked this earth,
    I swear all he did was work.
    He said: "The devil dreams on an idle horse,
    "So you listen to me squirt.

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,
    "And get right with the Man.
    "Fight your fights, find a grace,
    "And all the things that you can change,
    "And help somebody if you can."

    Now Granny said: Sonny, stick to your guns,
    "If you believe in something, no matter what,
    "'Cause it's better to be hated for who you are,
    "Than be loved for who you're not.
    She was five feet of concrete
    New York born an' raised on a slick city street.
    She'd cold-stare you down, stand her ground,
    Still kickin' and screamin' at 93.


    I remember just how frail she looked in that hospital bed:
    Takin' her last few breaths of life, smilin' as she said:

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,
    "Just a little sip ev'ry now and then.
    "Fight your fights, find a grace,
    "And all the things that you can change,
    "And help somebody if you can.
    "And get right with the Man.

    Instrumental Break.
    (C'mon now.)

    "I never let a cowboy make the coffee."
    Yeah, thats what Granny always said to my Grandad.
    And he'd say: "Never tell a joke that ain't that funny more than once."
    "And if you wanna hear God laugh, tell Him your plans.

    "Don't get too high on a bottle,
    "Get right with the Man, son.
    "Fight your fights, find a grace,
    "And all the things that you can change,
    "And help somebody if you can.
    "And get right with the Man."

    Yeah.
    (Get too high.)
    (Help somebody if you can.)
    And get right with the Man.

    Friends in low places, LOL....that's funny. I'm actually kinda surprised nobody said, "It's a great day to be a guy" by Cledus T. Judd..."I got my socks dryin' in the microwave, hair on my back I don't plan to shave, I got the house to myself while the wife's away, hey, I'll be rockin' all night..." NOW THAT'S A CLASSIC!!! haha.

    This was me, friends and cousins before we got our drivers license. I still take a guitar on camping trips, Jimmy captured it perfectly.

    Back when I was younger there was a field outside of town
    Out past the river down an old dirt trail we found
    And we'd sneak out of our windows and slip off without a sound
    And watch the fire burn down
    Well Bobby'd bring the matches and a couple pack of smokes
    I'd bring my old six-string that I'd gotten from my folks
    We'd steal our Daddy's whiskey and pass the bottle 'round
    And watch the fire burn down
    They'd say play your guitar all night long
    Sing us to sleep with a country song
    We'll dance on the embers and pass that bottle round
    And watch the fire burn down
    Well we talked and told tall tales and lied our lies of love
    Lay on our backs just to count the stars above
    And we all felt like cowboys when we slept out on the ground
    Watchin' the fire burn down
    And they say play your guitar all night long
    Sing us to sleep with a cowboy song
    And we'll dance on the embers and sleep out on the ground
    Watchin' the fire burn down
    Will the circle be unbroken
    Will the ashes be scattered on the ground
    Out past the river in a field outside of town
    Where we watched the fire burn down
    Well tonight I sit alone as this smoke rises in the air
    With my back against the darkness I can almost see us there
    Starin' at the flames like a boy I sit spellbound
    Watchin' the fire burn down
    And they say play your guitar all night long
    Sing us to sleep with a campfire song
    We'll dance on the embers and throw up on the ground
    Watchin' the fire burn down

    Hank Williams Jr - A Country Boy Can Survive

    The preacher man says it’s the end of time
    And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
    The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
    And you only get mugged
    If you go down town

    I live back in the woods, you see
    A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
    I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I can plow a field all day long
    I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
    We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
    Ain’t too many things these ole boys can’t do
    We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Because you can’t starve us out
    And you cant makes us run
    Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We came from the West Virginia coalmines
    And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I had a good friend in New York City
    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
    And his taught him to be a businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I’d send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
    Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
    And shoot him with my old 45
    Cause a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
    Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
    And we say grace and we say Ma’am
    And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

    We’re from North California and south Alabam
    And little towns all around this land
    And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot line
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
