"Working Man"

Written By: Joe Adee

“Working Man”
By : Joe Adee
Sitting on a back road in the still of the night
Full moon rising, Feeling all right
Radio playing low in my pickup truck
Ain’t no place I’d rather be when I’m down on my luck
People talk about hard times, see it everyday
This old world going down the drain, and the price that we pay
I don’t know about you, but I ain’t laying down (brother)
When the bottom falls out I’ll be running like hell
When my feet done if the ground
(Chorus)
Cause there is still blood sweat, tears, heart and soul
In the people I know (You & Me)
In the land of Red, White & Blue, and Home of the free ( ah, yeah)

Just give me a plow and a field to till some open lands and these two calloused hands (mmm, )
And I’ll show you how this country was built by the working man
Folks down on their bonus have been denied
Or how the grass was greener on the other side, but somebody lied
Take a good look around tell me what you see
Seems we lost the dream, direction, hope and priorities
Gona take a little time, hope and inspiration, from the old generation (ah, yeah)
Pick our feet back up off the ground
Come on back home to reality (ah yeah)
Because this intoxication of the fantasy world has got a hold on you and me
(Chorus Repeat)
Cause there is still blood sweat, tears, heart and soul
In the people I know (You & Me)
In the land of Red, White & Blue, and Home of the free ( ah, yeah)

This country was built by blood sweat tears and the working man
Heart and soul of the working man ( you and me) and the working man, the working man (ah yeah)

"That God I'm in the Country"

Written By: Joe Adee

I’ve been working all day on a concrete slab
Jackhammer pounding, driving me mad
It’s a jungle in the city when you take a look around and see you ain’t where
You’re supposed to be
When the sun goes down driving home
Pull to the side near a fishing hole
Jump in the water in my underware
Drink a cold beer , Hold it up in the air and shout YEAH!

Repeat X2
Thank God I’m in the Country

I like the smell of fresh cut hay
And the sound of the pines on a windy day
Crickets and frogs making music in the night
Picking in the band till ya get it right
Turkeys in the corn field
Fox in a hole
Winding down a dirt road driving real slow
Warmth of the fire on my aching bones
Sounds of the rooster when he crows
When my sweet baby kisses me I say Yeah!

Repeat X2
Thank God I’m in the Country

I work my fingers to the bone
Do what I do to keep my country home
Not to proud and blind to see that blood sweat and tears keeps me where
I’m Supposed to be

Repeat X2
Thank God I’m in the Country

I like mud and chewing cud
Burning of the back roads, it’s in my blood
The sound of my baby when she says to me
Come on baby won’t you lay with me
Repeat X2
Thank God I'm in the Country
