Fancy Labels

Fancy Labels

Fancy labels on whiskey bottles
Never meant a thing to me
You can keep your Crown Royal
I’ll be happy with Jim Beam

I don’t need those designer clothes
You see in fashion magaines
All I want is a clean tee shirt
And a pair of old blue jeans

You see

Chorus:
Country tunes and smoky rooms
Are the only things I need
Two steppin’ to a country band
Yeah that’s the life for me
The price we pay to feel OK
Is hard for me to believe
Cause all those fancy labels
Don’t mean a thing to me

All those hundred dollar lobsters
Can be served to someone else
I don’t need to spend a week’s pay
To feel good about myself

Give me some Texas barbecue
And a little homemade wine
Put on some Asleep at the Wheel
And we’ll have a real good time

You see

Chorus:
Country tunes and smoky rooms
Are the only things I need
Two steppin’ to a country band
Yeah that’s the life for me
The price we pay to feel OK
Is hard for me to believe
Cause all those fancy labels
Don’t mean a thing to me
