Song Meaning
Verse 1
You can take my truck
Take that old blue hound
Take that barn in the back
Burn it down to the ground
Well, there's more to me than an F150
A dog and couple bits of hay (That's right)
You can take this six strings
Right out of my hands
Take all these songs and shove'em in a can
Throw them in a river, yeah
I got more than that to see
Verse 2
Well, this is real hand-me-down from my pa's box
It's a sweet slow roll of southern drawl
It's my last name, it's where I come from
Well, this is real 'cause the whiskey runnin' through my brain
And age is my looks and my girl loves
My father's father, my father's son
Yeah, daylight out of phase from a man
And leave 'em be broken heart in there
But you ain't never gonna take this accent
Verse 3
It's got a little dirt
It's got a little rasp
Yeah, the marlboro red will do that
If you talkin' about taking things from me
Why don't you take those
Oh, it's Tennessee truth
Yeah, small-town prayer
A Sunday prayer comin' outta my mouth
Thinking how she said yes, when I propose
Verse 4
Well, this is real hand-me-down from my pa's box
It's a sweet slow roll of southern drawl
It's my last name, it's where I come from
Well, this is real 'cause the whiskey runnin' through my brain
And age is my looks and my girl loves
My father's father, my father's son
Yeah, daylight out of phase from a man
And leave 'em be broken heart in there
But you ain't never gonna take this accent
Verse 5
Well, this is real hand-me-down from my pa's box
It's a sweet slow roll of southern drawl
It's my last name, it's where I come from
Well, this is real 'cause the whiskey runnin' through my brain
And age is my looks and my girl loves
My father's father, my father's son
Yeah, daylight out of phase from a man
And leave 'em be broken heart in there
But you ain't never gonna take this accent
But you ain't never gonna take this accent
