This is a song about where I'm from, dedicated to everyone there, living and dead.


We play hard out in the country
and when we play we play for keeps.
We don’t buckle up when the road gets bumpy.
We live fast and we live free.

We die easy in the country.
We get bored and look for kicks.
We get lazy, we get empty,
we get high and we get sick.

But we love hard out in the country
and we live with no regrets.
We don’t care too much for money.
It can’t buy what we love best.

We don’t forget out in the country.
We don’t forget the friends we’ve known,
who’ve gone away but not to nothing,
who dwell in their eternal homes.

We play hard out in the country
