Demun Jones – Country First Lyrics

It’s a place it’s a feeling, it’s where I want to be
It’s a star filled night on a moonlit sky, deep inside of me
It’s a one lane road, where I belong
Just another small town we call home
Yeah, for better or for worse
I’m country first

Mr. Kicklighter’s dock, my brother, a couple cane poles
Fist fightin’ or fishin’, rippin’ brim out the same hole
Bites and misses, some too little, we had to let go
We were buildin’ memories even though we didn’t know
Worked with pops all summer, he taught us to call him Rick
We mixed all the mortar, built the scaffolds and stacked the brick
Straw hats gave us shade while we worked in the oven
That southern sun, unforgivin’, I wouldn’t trade it for nothin’
A lifetime passed in what seems like a blink
If I’d known I was livin’ that fast I would’ve stop to think
How good the water feels, bare foot in the creek
Or the mud between your toes when ya feet sink

It’s a place it’s a feeling, it’s where I want to be
It’s a star filled night on a moonlit sky, deep inside of me
It’s a one lane road, where I belong
Just another small town we call home
Yeah, for better or for worse
I’m country first

I built my dream house in the field where we played as kids
Married my dream girl in the chapel cleansed of my sins
Two beautiful baby girls God blessed us with
They might fuss and fight a little but they’re still best friends
And these songs that I’m writin’, it keeps food on the table
And all the long nights drivin’ keeps me humble and grateful
And when I walk on the stage, the people greet me with love
‘Cause most of them are country too, and they know where I’m from

It’s a place where that pecan pie can take you back in time
Nine years old with an ole cane pole and a red worm on your line

It’s a place it’s a feeling, it’s where I want to be
It’s a star filled night on a moonlit sky, deep inside of me (It’s inside of me)
It’s a one lane road, where I belong
Just another small town (Just another small town) we call home
Yeah, for better or for worse
I’m country first
