    Lyrics

    I was born in a small town
    In the hills of Tennessee
    Kentucky raised just a country boy
    That's all I'll ever be

    Daddy ran a steel house
    To keep us kids alive
    Just doin?what he had to do after momma died

    Same people that called him no good
    Meet him in the back woods for a little taste
    He said I may take your money
    But don't put yourself above me
    Don't cut me down as you walk away

    'Cuz you don't know me, you don't know who I am
    You don't know the pain that I've been through
    So don't judge me until you stand where I stand
    I don't need you or anyone else to approve
    'Cuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

    I left home at 16 with a guitar on my back
    Everything I called my own I carried in a paper sack
    Spent years of havin? nothin? sleepin?i n my car
    I'd drive all day and play all night in the honky tonks and bars

    Same people that called me crazy
    Said that I'm too lazy to amount to anything
    Are the first ones to the stage
    Just beggin for a little taste
    Say they knew me when nobody knew my name

    But you don't know me, you don't know who I am
    You don't know the pain that I've been through
    So don't judge me until you stand where I stand
    I don't need you or anyone else to approve
    Cuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

    Same people that called me crazy
    Said that I'm too lazy to amount to anything
    Are the first ones to the stage
    Just beggin for a little taste
    Say they knew me when nobody knew my name

    But you don't know me, you don't know who I am
    You don't know the pain that I've been through
    So don't judge me until you stand where I stand
    I don't need you or anyone else to approve
    'Cuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

    Oh the blood in these veins is tried and true.
