Lynchburg

Written By: Johnny b

Lynchburg.
Daddy was a Texan just like Jeb and me
It was a hard time to be at war but we never went hungry
And all I ever wanted was to live up to his dream, I wont it seems
Im leaving for, Lynchburg Tennessee.

Daddy was an oil man my brother came one too
Hes so much better than me no matter what I do
And all that I knew was how to be free, hes not like me
I belong Oooh Lynchburg Tennessee.

Daddy was so proud now that Jebs a congress man
And he sais one day that boy will be governor of the land
And all I ever wanted was a little recognition
Hey ma look at me Im going Oooh Lynchburg Tennessee.

Everybodys got their problems but mine are taken rite out of my hands
And I know Im not your favourite son, I need my own piece of mind, I try like any other man, thats what I am.

Daddys far from mind now Im bigger than Jesus
Whos your favourite now pa, Im the business world Cesar
Im mining oil ten thousand barrels a day, money to throw away
Are you proud of me, Oooh top of the world ma Lynchburg Tennessee.

I think Im crazy, now Im on Air force one
Its a great time to be at war and winnings so much fun
All these damn hippies want me out they did not vote for me
Well its the land of the free Oooh Lynchburg Tennessee!
