Lyrics

They don’t like us here much
They don’t like the way we talk
They don’t like hillbilly music
But they’ll work us till we drop
When you’re down they push you down fella
When you’re fresh outta luck
They’ll call you a bum and throw you in jail
If you ain’t got 50 bucks

We come from Oklahoma, New Mexico
North and South Dakota, Colorado
The heart of Texas, The plains of Kansas
We ain’t looking for a handout
We’re looking for a home

Half Vs. Solo

They look at us and they see beggars
They look at us and they see thieves
Not proud hard-working families
Just another mouth to feed
They don’t know anything about me
My children or my wife
We grew the wheat for that bread on their table
Once upon another life

Chorus / Solo Full Verse

They don’t like us here much
They don’t like the way we talk
They don’t like hillbilly music
But they’ll work us till we drop

Chorus
