[Verse 1]
I’m going back where I made tracks
In my boyhood days on gran-daddy’s land
The family ties that bind
Hope I can still find
My mother joins in the red playback sand
The next stop on my quest
Place I still love the best
Alabama river bank now I see the lights
Although Montgomery town
Let’s put the hammer down
We going down the lost highway tonight, yeah

[Chorus]
It’s about time for some country songs
It’s about time to play some southern rock to the bone
Cause we’ve had enough of this weird pop country sound
On my guitar, brothers and sisters come, and gather around
A country state of mind
We’ll pass a little musky vine wine
Yeah I’m telling you it’s about time (time, it’s about time)

[Verse 2]
I watched Waylon and Merle
They were the kings of the world
Far as I was concerned, and then he changed
Thanks to Jerry Lee
Johnny and Jim, Hank and Miss Audrey
Hey, I’ve done my share of crying
It’s about time

[Chorus]
It’s about time for some country songs
It’s about time to play some southern rock all night long
Cause we’ve had enough of this weird pop country sound
On my guitar, brothers and sisters come, and gather around
A country state of mind (country state of mind)
It’s 1976 in the mind
Hey I’m telling you it’s about time (time, it’s about time)

[Outro]
I pulled a Bobby Mercer on that mother
