Demun Jones – Country First lyrics
(ft. Long Cut)


It’s a place and it’s a feeling
It’s where I wanna be
It’s a star filled night
On a moon lit sky
Deep inside of me
It’s a one lane road
Where I belong
Just another small town
We call home
Yeah
For better or for worse
I’m Country First

Mr. Kicklighters’ dock
My brother a couple cane poles
Fist fighting or fishing
Ripping brim out the same hole
Bites and misses
Some too little we had to let go
We were building memories
Even though we didn’t know
Worked with pops all summer
He taught us to call him Rick
We mixed all the mortar
Built the scaffolds and stacked the brick
Straw hats gave us shade
While we worked in the oven
That southern sun unforgiving
I wouldn’t trade it for nothing
A lifetime passed in what seems like a blink
If I’d known I was living that fast
I would’ve stopped to think
How good the water feels
Bare foot in the creek
Or the mud between ya toes
When your feet sink

It’s a place and it’s a feeling
It’s where I wanna be
It’s a star filled night
On a moon lit sky
Deep inside of me
It’s a one lane road
Where I belong
Just another small town
We call home
Yeah
For better or for worse
I’m Country First

I built my dream house in field
Where we played as kids
Married my dream girl in the chapel
Cleansed of my sins
Two beautiful baby girls
God blessed us with
They might fuss and fight a little
But they’re still best friends
And these songs that I’m writing
It keeps food on the table
And all the long nights driving
Keeps me humble and grateful
And when I walk on the stage
The people greet me with love
Cause most of them are country too
And they know where I’m from

It’s a place where that pecan pie
Can take you back in time
Nine years old with an ole cane pole
And a red worm on your line

It’s a place and it’s a feeling
It’s where I wanna be
It’s a star filled night
On a moon lit sky
Deep inside of me
It’s a one lane road
Where I belong
Just another small town
We call home
Yeah
For better or for worse
I’m Country First
