Pocahantas Proud Gretchen Wilson Lyrics

I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois
Everybody thought of me
As one of the boys
'Cause I'd run with the crowd that was tough

At 15, I was attending Big O's bar
And I'd sing til' 2 am for
A half full tip jar
Spent my youth singing truth and paying dues

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let them down
It's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud

Well, I knocked on every door on music row
But they looked down at me and said,
"Girl, go back home
You ain't got what we need in this town"

But they couldn't whup the fighting side of me
You know where I come from
We don't give up easily
Overnight took all my life to be found

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let them down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud, Pocahontas proud

At 27, I had baby Grace
And I was born again
When I saw her sweet face
And I knew she was the greatest thing I'd ever do

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
I'll be damned if I'm gonna let them down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown
I'll be damned if I'm gonna let them down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
Know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud

I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois

Pocahontas proud
Know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud
Pocahontas proud
But now Pocahontas, I love you
