Barn Party 03:38
I know this barn back in the woods a bit, at the end of an old gravel drive. It's an old wooden place where country folks get buck wild, and the party will never die. I ain't never been too fond of a empty cooler in the back of a truck. Gonna holler at my boys and tell em fill it up, so take your pick and pour it out and fill it to the edge of the cup. I call my buddy from down the road, I hear him comin, yeah, I hear him comin. It's just a small town thing baby, it's just a small town thing. Ain't much to do round here but have a barn party. Find an old barn and make it look nice. Get a Yeti cooler, fill it with ice. Then you better call up all of your friends, cuz next weekend we will do it again. I ain't never been too fond of a empty cooler in the back of a truck. Gonna holler at my boys and tell em fill it up, so take your pick and pour it out and fill it to the edge of the cup. I call my buddy from down the road, I hear him comin, yeah, I hear him comin. It's just a small town thing baby, it's just a small town thing. Ain't much to do round here but have a barn party.

Ain't much to do round here but have a barn party. Ain't much to do round here but have a barn party. There is literally nothing to do. Well you know I don't drink, so keep your Bacardi, but I'll still get buck wild at the barn party.

It's not by happenstance there was a suited body strollin across my land. He came and knocked on my front door and said you're not allowed to have your guns anymore. What gives you the right? He said there was some legislation passed overnight. Won't see me at a march, won't see me walkin. Out here in the sticks we let our guns do the talkin. You see what happens when you try to take my guns? Me and my buddies we're about to have some real fun. This is the last time you're ever gonna take something from me. This is the last time you're ever gonna get a chance to speak. We picked him up and we took him out back and by the look on his face, he's on the verge of a heart attack. Started cryin bout his kids or somethin, but me and my boys, we ain't shotgun bluffin. Put the barrel of my sawed-off right up to his head. That's when Billy chimed in, "I say we hang him instead." I can't wait to watch you swingin from the end of a rope. I can't wait to hear the sound when you choke. This is the last time you're ever gonna take something from me. This is the last time you're ever gonna get a chance to speak. Ain't no pretty please, it's plain as day, we're the neighbors of the beast. This is the last time you're ever gonna mess with, yeah, mess with the U S of A. You ain't ever gonna take my guns, you ain't ever gonna win this fight. Yeah, you ain't ever gonna take my guns, no sir buddy, not tonight. You ain't ever gonna take my guns, you ain't ever gonna win this fight. Yeah, you ain't ever gonna take my guns, no sir buddy, it ain't gonna happen tonight. This is the last time you're ever gonna take something from me. This is the last time you're ever gonna get a chance to breathe. Ain't no pretty please, it's plain as day, we're the neighbors of the beast. This is the last time you're ever gonna mess with, yeah, mess with the U S of A.

Everybody's got opinions, I've got a few opinions to share myself. Don't really care about your feelins, in fact I think it's time we put em back on the shelf. You done opened up the wrong can of worms, buddy. You don't want to rile me. Talk smart, you get popped, you open your mouth and I'mma shove my fist down in it. This is my family tree. Try to do us wrong, and buddy you'll end up swingin. Whether we are buds or we just met, this'll be one of them things you'll never forget. Got these people in suits claiming to be the best, well I think it's time we gave it a rest. I know you think you've got immunity until they find you with a hole in your chest.

An average day, straight from work to the couch, and then I kick my feet up, put a brew to my mouth. Grabbed the remote and flipped on the news, with so many opinions, I'm so confused. Then on the screen I see a name I can trust. Davis Nolan from channel 2 is a must. His chipper demeanor began to change, as the clouds in the sky began to look so strange. He said the cold air from the north met with the air in the south again, and I can see it spinnin. Peeked out my window and I saw the funnel cloud come tumblin down. It hit the ground. Then I saw it swirlin my direction. I went runnin searchin for a place to hide. I was inside lookin for protection, watchin my stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky. Found my toaster out in Mississippi; found my mailbox hidin out in Missouri. I pray you'll never know what it's like, watchin your stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky. Now that the carnage is over, what should we do? Act like them hard workin folks and strap up our boots. Don't need your sympathy, won't hear me whine, but a flickerin TV just sent chills down my spine. It said the 'nado from before will be headin around again; now I can see it spinnin. I shot my buddy a glance and said "Man, this is our chance. We're bout to take this 'nader out with our bare hands. Then I saw it swirlin my direction. I went runnin searchin for a place to hide. I was inside lookin for protection, watchin my stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky. Found my spare boots over in Kentucky; found my shotgun hidin out in Alabama. I pray you'll never know what it's like, watchin your stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky. Oh, the Tennessee sky. Oh, the Tennessee sky. Yeah, this thing is putting up one heck of a fight. I've got some tricks up my sleeve and I keep it hidden in plain sight. I'm gonna take off my belt and tie me to some pipes, just like they did in Twister. I'm closin my eyes, I'll be swingin wildly. Then I saw it swirlin my direction. I wasn't runnin, searchin for a place to hide. I wasn't inside lookin for protection. Watchin my stuff get thrown. Then I saw it swirlin my direction. I wasn't runnin, searchin for a place to hide. I wasn't inside lookin for protection. Watchin my stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky. Found my drumset around North Carolina. Found my guitar hidin out in Arkansas. I pray you'll never know what it's like, watchin your stuff get thrown across the Tennessee sky.

It was a beautiful day, ridin in my '97 Chevrolet. I had a wad of hundos in between the seats, if you know what I mean, yeah. You can catch me with a bottle of Jack pressed to my lips, I'll be throwin it back. I reach the bottom and before you know it, my chin hits my chest and I start dozin. How can you go from feelin so alive to bein five minutes closer to dyin? Cuz when this moment dies, we're gonna die. How can you go from feelin so alive, to have your mind set ready to die? Cuz when this moment dies, we're gonna die. Woke up in the passenger seat with someone sittin next to me. Could it be the ghost of Waylon Jennings? Ha, I think it might be. This isn't my first time, and it surely will not be my last. But I swear, these country ghosts are lookin out for me. These country ghosts are lookin out for me. When I was young, I was up in a loft; I tripped on a toy and I fell. It's hard to believe who saved my life, but I remember it so well. Right before I hit the ground, I saw the ghost of Johnny Cash. He set me ever so gently down; I turned to thank him, but he was gone so fast. Woke up in the passenger seat with someone sittin next to me. Could it be the ghost of old Hank Williams? Ha, I think it might be. This isn't my first time, and it surely will not be my last. But I swear, these country ghosts are lookin out for me. Due to these frequent affairs, I tend to live my life reckless. I'm never turnin it down. Due to these frequent affairs, I tend to live my life reckless, I'm never turning around. Woke up in the passenger sear with someone sitting next to me. Could that be the ghost of Chris LeDoux? Oh, it better not be. I can't stand his voice, and I never really liked any of his songs. But either way, these country ghosts are looking out for me. These country ghosts are looking out for me.
