Lyrics

Outlaw

Written By: Racheal Champey and Michael Christian

OUTLAW:

Verse 1:
I was born a Rebel Child
from the wrong side of the tracks
spent my days skippin class and smokin a little grass
I snuck in the bars learned to play this guitar
My friends all call me outlaw
but I am just trying to survive

Verse 2:
My friends they went to college
and I was left behind
tried my luck at the factory
but I turned to a life of crime
now I'am dealing drugs and selling moon shine
they call me an outlaw
but I am just trying to survive

Verse 3:
Fire Up that GTO got a four speed on the floor
cock back that 45 cause their shootin at the door
I gues we're not welcome
round hear no more
They call me an outlaw
but I am just trying to survive

Verse 4:
Over A Hundred Miles and hour
down the boarder line
got Folsom Prison on the radio
and the cops anit far behind
got twelve gallons of my best moonshine
they call me an outlaw
but I am just trying to survive

I'm Country

Written By: Michael Christian and Tina Fullbright Stevens

Verse 1:
Well I'm plain, and I'm simple, and I'm country
Tell me what do you think of me?
I've been called a stoned cowboy
And I guess its true

Verse 2
Well I stand firm and fast
Work hard, with a lot of pride
Got love ones who care for me
anit no one gonna put us down

Chorus
I am a cowboy hard and true
Don’t know what I am gonna loose
Got country running, threw my veins
As deep as Mother Nature
As deep as Mother Nature

Verse 3:
I got a sweet little southern gal
Strap a six-gun on my side
Surviving on Gods clean air
You know living life, with out a care

Chorus:
I am a cowboy hard and true
Don’t know what I am gonna loose
Got country running threw my veins
As deep as Mother Nature
As deep as Mother Nature

Verse 4:
Well I am home grown country as I can be
From clothes down to what I eat
Head to toe in southern pride
No city limit ways gonna break my stride

Repeat Chorus
