Just off of the beaten path a little dot on a state road map
That's where I was born and where I'll die
Things move at a slower pace, nobody's in the rat race
And these days that's a special way of life

Down home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home, a man's good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up, down home

In the corner of the hardware store, gathered 'round a checkerboard
Old men tellin' lies and crowning kings
Kids drivin' down the old town square tops rolled down in the cool night air
Go and see what's shakin' at the dairy queen

Down home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home, a man's good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up, down home

When I was a boy, I couldn't wait to leave this place
But now I want to see my children raised down home
Down home, folks know if they're fallin' on hard times
They can fall back on those of us raised up

Down home, where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home, a man's good word and a hand shake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin' on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up, down home, down home

Way down home, down home, down home
Way down home, down home
