Lyrics

Just off of the beaten path A little dot on the state road map That's where I was born And where I'll die Things move at a slower pace Nobody's in a rat race And these days That's a special way of life [CHORUS] Down home Where they know you by name And treat you like family Down home A mans good word and a Handshake are all you need Folks know If they're falling on hard times They can fall back home Those of us raised up down home

In the corner of the hardware store Gathered round a checkerboard Old men telling lies and crowning kings Kids driving round the old town square Cops roll down in the cool night air Go and see what's shaking At the Dairy Queen [repeat CHORUS] When I was a boy I couldn't wait to leave this place But now I wanna see my children raised Down home, down home Folks know If they're falling on hard times They can fall back home Those of us raised up [repeat CHORUS] Down home Way down home Down home, down home Way down home
