I met a guy on the red eye
He spotted my guitar and said, "What do you do?"
I said, "I sing for a living
Country music mixed with a little rock and a little blues"

He said, "I'm sorry but I've never been crazy
'Bout that twang and trains and hillbilly thing
Whatever made you want to sing stuff like that?"
I just looked at him and laughed and said

"'Cause it's songs about me and who I am
Songs about lovin' and livin'
And good hearted women and family and God
Yeah, they're all just songs about me, songs about me"

So I offered him tickets
I said, "You'll see what I mean if you show up tonight"
He said, "I doubt you'll change my opinion
I'll be kind of busy, but hey man, I'll try"

Then later on when we finished our songs
About scars and cars and broken hearts
I saw him, he was standing there right next to the stage
And he shouted, "Man, you were right

It was like you sang those songs about me and who I am
Songs about lovin' and livin'
And good hearted women and family and God
Yeah, they're all just songs about me, songs about me, yeah"

So I'll just keep on singing 'til I hear the whole world singing
Those are songs about me and who I am
Songs about lovin' and livin'
And good hearted women, family and God
Yeah, they're all just songs about me, songs about me
