lifeblood: songs: lyrics: sure feels good anyway


i'll get your text about 3 am
when i cross back over the border again
bye-bye canada hello usa
those lefties sure make a lot of sense
and sometimes it's nice to feel good in my skin
but i'd trade it all for some southern hospitality

i know that you don't like me
oh but it sure feels good anyway
i know that you don't like me
oh but it sure feels good anyway

i'm gonna tell them boys don't be a drag
ain't ya tired of fightin' 'bout the damned ol' flag
well it ain't southern pride it's just southern hate
and i know from your mamas that you're better than that
every time i call well you have my back
some time for muddy buddies and a tall glass of sweet tea

i know that you don't like me
oh but it sure feels good anyway
i know that you don't like me
oh but it sure feels good

i've got gravel from the road in the bottom of my boot
the kiss that you left still burning thru
i can't rest til get back home to you
when i left the last words that were out of your mouth
were how can you live in the backwards south
devil in the roots and jesus on the vine
cause it feels fine

yeah i was born in the grist of a rebel yell
swaddled in the song of the whip-poor-will
they haunt me and they hold me just the same
but it's an ounce of comfort for a pound of grief
i just wanna sit on the porch with you and hear the tall pines creak
still sweating in september when that sun goes down

i know that you don't like me
ah but it sure feels good anyway
i know that you don't like me
oh but it sure feels good anyway
sure feels good

gravel from the road in the bottom of my boot
the kiss that you left still burning thru
i can't rest til get back home to you
gravel from the road in the bottom of my boot
the kiss that you left still burning thru
i can't rest til get back home to you yeah
