1986 Harley Blowin' smoke and suckin' oil
My daddy said, "Buy it and you're crazy, boy"
Can't tell me nothin

It took two months to fix it up
One day to lay it down
I got a little hitch in my get-along now
Can't tell me nothin'

Talk is cheap
And free advice is worth the price you pay
I have to find out for myself the hard way
Can't tell me nothin'

Hometown homecoming sweet heart
Nobody thought I had a prayer
Her momma said, "Boy don't come around here"
Can't tell me nothin'

They say be careful what you wish for
I wanted to be her man
Two babies and a trailer later here I am
Can't tell me nothin'

Talk is cheap
And free advice is worth the price you pay
I have to find out for myself the hard way
Can't tell me nothin'

They say that drinkin' will kill you
The same thing with rollin' smoke
But that's two of the three things that
I like most
Can't tell me nothin'

I know what the good book preaches
But I know how I am
Sure hope somebody up there understands
You can't tell me nothin'
