i’m one of you lyrics – hank williams jr.

they say it takes more now
to do what our mom and daddy’s did
they made it look so easy
working hard and raising kids

if you get in trouble at school
you got in trouble at home
you can’t outrun momma’s wooden spoon
or the princ*p*l’s telephone

raise your hand if you only had
three channels on tv
and that little town that kept you down
is where you wanna be

yeah, i’m one of you
yeah, i’m one of you
no you’re not by yourself
there’s somebody else
who’s been there too

if you still wish you still had
some growing up to do
you’re one of me
and i’m one of you

tell the truth
do you still wonder
how fast your car will go
when sweet home alabama
comes on the radio

i bet jesus and your momma
now they’re way up there, on your mind
anytime you take a sip
or you walk across the line

if you understand why your old man
said, “the whole world’s gone to h*ll”
but you still believe the american dream
is alive and well

i’m one of you
yeah, i’m one of you
no you’re not by yourself
there’s somebody here
who’s been there too

i know what ya thinking, what ya drink
and i know why you do
you’re one of me
yeah, and i’m one of you

do you feel a little bit out of touch
or politically incorrect
then you and me both agree
what did you expect

i’m one of you
yeah, i’m one of you
no, no you’re not by yourself
there’s somebody else
who’s been there too

i know what you think
about the good old red, white and blue
you’re one of me and i’m one of you
you’re one of me and i’m one of you
