it’s who you know lyrics – trace adkins

it’s who you know

the quarterback down at the school
makes all the rules cause he’s super cool
and everybody wants to be just like him

there’s a little girl in his homeroom cl*ss
sits in the back cause she thinks she’s fat
lookin’ for a corner she can hide in.

in life there ain’t too many level playin’ fields
and it don’t seem fair, but here’s the deal
brother, here’s the deal

you can walk on water
you can walk on the moon
you can walk through memphis
wearin’ blue suede shoes
when the walkin’ is over
at the end of the road
it ain’t what you’ve done, son
it’s who you know,
yeah it’s who you know

meet the man who owns it all
that’s him there on the lobby wall
don’t it look like he’s been carved from granite

his hands are soft, his heart is hard
and he only smokes the best cigars
and you’ll call him sir
cause he’s earned it, d*mn it

there’s a little old lady
cleanin’ up after him at night
and she prays someday that he’ll see the light
now i think she’s got it right

you can walk on water
you can walk on the moon
you can walk through memphis
wearin’ blue suede shoes
when the walkin’ is over
at the end of the road
it ain’t what you’ve done, son
it’s who you know,
yeah, yeah, it’s who you know

at the end of the road
it’s who you know

you can walk on water
(yes it’s who you know)
you can walk on the moon
(he’s the man with the plan)
you can walk through memphis
wearin’ blue suede shoes
when the walkin’ is over
at the end of the road
it ain’t what you’ve done, son
it’s who you know,
it ain’t what you’ve done, son
it’s who you know
