Well in the town where I was raised
The clock ticks and the cattle graze
Time passed with amazing grace
Back where I come from

You can lie on a riverbank
Or paint your name on a water tank
Or miscount all the beers you drank
Back where I come from

Back where I come from
Is where when it's said and done
And I'm proud as anyone
That's where I come from

We learned in Sunday school
Who made the sun through
I know who made the moonshine, too
Back where I come from

Blue eyes on a Saturday night
Tan legs in the broad daylight
TVs, they were black and white
Back where I come from

Back where I come from
Is where when it's said and done
And I'm proud as anyone
That's where I come from

Some say it's a backward place
Narrow minds on a narrow wage
But I make it a point to say
That's where I come from

That's where I come from
Where I'll be when it's said and done
And I'm proud as anyone
That's where I come from

Back where I come from
I'm an old Tennessean
And I'm proud as anyone
That's were I come from
