Jeff Bates — Country Man lyrics

I like hot cornbread and sweet iced tea
Homegrown tomatoes and fresh picked peas
Chicken fried steak and gravy cooked in a cast iron pan
I think dogs are worth their weight in gold

And lovin’ your neighbor is good for the soul
And I believe in God
And you’ve got my word when I shake your hand
I’m a country man

I love a parade on the fourth of July
The fireworks fillin’ up the sky, the stars and stripes
And the sound of a high school marching band
Yeah, and I love livin’ in the land of the free

I believe in peace and harmony
And I’ll fight for it if need be
I’ll take a stand
I’m a country man

It’s playin’ on my radio
It’s in my heart, it’s my soul
It’s what I do and I’m proud to say it’s who I am
I’m a country man

It’s playin’ on my radio
It’s in my heart, it’s my soul
It’s what I do and I’m proud to say it’s who I am
I’m a country man

I love it when the crowd is lovin’ my song
Clappin’ their hands and singin’ along
While they stand cheerin’ on me and the band
I love country fans

I’m a country man
I’m a country man
I’m a country man
