Should've seen the look on the face of the boss of the second shift
When I threw my hard hat at him
And suggested the box where he could stick it
I walked downstairs and told him I was leavin' Bethlehem
Like I'd seen the Saviour, had tears in my eyes
Holdin' my hands up and shoutin' "Amen"

[Chorus]
'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do

We buried daddy just like week at the church to save his soul
Man, he dreamed of pilot's wings
Spent his whole life diggin' coal
I got a guitar under my bed, but I've been too scared to ply
But that's enough of that stuff; I'm packin' up my truck
They can just kiss my butt goodbye

[Chorus]

'Cause there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
(Ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do)
I spent most of my life wrapped up tight
In somebody else's hand-me-down old shoes
Startin' today, I'm someone I'd be proud to know
You might tell me where to go
But there ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do
