Do You Know What That Is? Lyrics

by Darryl Worley

Work like a dog all day in the hay
(Do you know what that is?)
Five days work for one days pay
(Do you know what that is?)

Crops burnt up so pray for rain
And watch all your work go down the drain
It's enough to drive a man insane
(Do you know what that is?)

That's country man, that's the way it goes
A lot of folks never get down that road
But you won't read if you dont sew

That's country man, you don't always win
But you don't give up and you don't give in
You keep on bouncing back again

Move to the city where you don't belong
(Do you know what that is?)
Bet your whole life on a prayer and a song
(Do you know what that is?)

Big wigs sittin' in a black leather chair
And he's your friend when the weather's fair
First sign of rain he's out of there
(Do you know what that is?)

That's country man, it's a poor boy's dream
Taking your first ride in a Limousine
Look at yourself on the silver screen

That's country man, it's a ruthless game
It's here one day and gone the same
Everybody's looking for the next big thing

Hey that's okay, Ill be alright
At least I can lay down to sleep at night
I don't need the hassle anyway

That's country man, that's the way it goes
A lot of folks never get down that road
But you won't reap if you dont sow

That's country man, you don't always win
But you don't give up and you don't give in
You keep on bouncing back again

That's country
Ever feel like you could just explode
(Do you know what that is?)
And you lay it down, take the high road
