Hillbilly

You may say I’m hillbilly

Or country, or just really

Not up to the standards that you’ve set

You can justify your reasons or change them, or leave them

But honey, you better come and listen yet

 

Hillbilly, Hillbilly, just a normal old billy

Coming from an elevated spot

You can call me a hillbilly, or anything really

But don’t call me something I’m not

 

I may drive something lifted

Not be, academically gifted

According to the way that you talk

But for me, I’m just different

I like squirrel meat and home cooking

And chew it up when I talk

 

Now man that might seem a little mean talkin about country folk that way

Walkin’ around in coveralls drippin’ tobaccer juice playin a banjo

Maybe a fiddle, singin real loud  across the mountain

Singin, about, about, about a

 

Hillbilly, Hillbilly, just a normal old billy

Coming from an elevated spot

You can call me a hillbilly, or anything really

But don’t call me something I’m not

 

They may be high, but they ain’t wasted

They’re just way up there listening

To the sounds the birds and the trees make

It ain’t wrong, just country

And man are they lucky

To be away from a lot

 

 

You Lucky!

Hillbilly, Hillbilly, just a normal old billy

Coming from an elevated spot

You can call me a hillbilly, or anything really

But don’t call me something I’m not
