Hillbilly Band (Griggs Andy)

North Louisiana on a Saturday night I was sittin' in the glow of the dashboard lights I'll never forget I was six years old When I heard comin' out of my daddys radio Came out of my seat and said, "Son of a gun" And daddy said, "Now that's the Opry son" I heard the crowd start screamin' And I started dreamin' Of one day runnin' With a Hillbilly band Bought a guitar, learned a few chords Found a few guys and a beat up Ford Pretty girls would come from miles around Like bees to honey to hear that sound All we could afford was bread and mayonnaise Living for the moment when we'd hit that stage I heard the crowd start screamin' Man you ain't livin' Till you go runnin' With a Hillbilly band I came to Nashville, they liked my songs I got a bus forty-five feet long Bought a house to put a gold record on the wall The funny thing is I'm hardly there at all The money, the cars, you can have that stuff Just give me what I love To hear the crowd start screamin' To the song I'm singin' The one about runnin' With a Hillbilly band Hillbilly band Yeah Hillbilly band Woo it's a Hillbilly band You all it's a Hillbilly band
