Words and music by jimmy nail

When I was born as I recall
The preacher didn't hold out any hope at all
He looked at me all pink and skin
Thought he'd better dip me in the bath again

I scuffed my shins on bigger things
People throwin' rocks at the angel's wings
But through it all I stood tall
Even when my back was up against the wall

The devil's daughter keep a calling out my name
I so sincerely want to cross the road and play the game

Raise your hands, jump for joy
Let's hear it for the country boy
Raise your hands, jump for joy
Let's hear it for the country boy

So I grow'd up became a man
Took my daddy's teachings all across the land
The journey's long but I must be strong
And try to tell the difference 'tween right and wrong

The devil's daughter keep a calling out my name
I've been to heaven! Now I'm never gonna see things the same

Raise your hands, jump for joy
Let's hear it for the country boy
Raise your hands, jump for joy
Let's hear it for the country boy
