Tried and True Lyrics

"Tried and True"

I was born in a small town
In the hills of Tennessee
Kentucky raised just a country boy
Thatís all Iíll ever be

Daddy ran a steel house
To keep us kids alive
Just doiní what he had to do after momma died

Same people that called him no good
Meet him in the back woods for a little taste
He said I may take your money
But donít put yourself above me
Donít cut me down as you walk away

ĎCuz you donít know me, you donít know who I am
You donít know the pain that Iíve been through
So donít judge me until you stand where I stand
I donít need you or anyone else to approve
ĎCuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

I left home at 16 with a guitar on my back
Everything I called my own I carried in a paper sack
Spent years of haviní nothiní sleepiní in my car
Iíd drive all day and play all night in the honky tonks and bars

Same people that called me crazy
Said that Iím too lazy to amount to anything
Are the first ones to the stage
Just beggin for a little taste
Say they knew me when nobody knew my name

But you donít know me, you donít know who I am
You donít know the pain that Iíve been through
So donít judge me until you stand where I stand
I donít need you or anyone else to approve
Cuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

Same people that called me crazy
Said that Iím too lazy to amount to anything
Are the first ones to the stage
Just beggin for a little taste
Say they knew me when nobody knew my name

But you donít know me, you donít know who I am
You donít know the pain that Iíve been through
So donít judge me until you stand where I stand
I donít need you or anyone else to approve
Cuz the blood in these veins is tried and true

Oh the blood in these veins is tried and true.
