This is Real Country

Where I come from
Men don't buy trucks made in Japan
Folks earn a livin' off the land
We don't buy boots made in Taiwan
Hit the fields at the crack of dawn

Don't need advice on how to live our lives

This is real country
As good as it gets
This is real country
won't settle for less
This is real country
Where I come from
We call it 110% American

Where I grew up
We all tried to do good in school
Bein' polite was really cool
Did our chores without bein' told
Church on Sunday never got old


Now I ain't sayin' city folks - got it wrong
I just know that's not where I belong


Where I come from
We help our neighbors when they're down
Don't get a check from somewhere downtown
We do our part when called to serve
Never take more than we deserve

Don't need no advice on how to live our lives

Yeah, It's 110% American
We call it 110% American

110% American Made (spoken)
