This thread is about songs that impact people deeply right?

A song that means alot to me is Boondocks, a country song sang by Little Big Town. Here's the lyrics:


(Chorus
I feel no shame
I'm proud of where I came from
I was born and raised in the boondocks
One thing I know
No matter where I go
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

And I can feel
That muddy water running through my veins
And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
It sings to me and it sounds familiar

(Chorus)

And I can taste
That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
When it grows wild
On the banks down at old camp creek
Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing

(Chorus)

It's where I learned about living
It's where I learned about love
It's where I learned about working hard
and getting by with just enough

It's where I learned about Jesus
And knowing where I stand
You can take it or leave it, this is me
This is who I am

Give me a tin roof
A front porch and a gravel road
And that's home to me
It feels like home to me

(Chorus)

I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

(2x)
You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
(Down in the boondocks)
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

Say a little prayer for me


This song means alot to me because it just seems like I was born and raised in the boondocks. My mom was, and she told me about all of the things mentioned in the song. It seems like I have been in the boondocks all this time. Yet i'm stuck moving into an apartment in the hot hot summer. I love this song and it's my favorite of all. My mom was born and raised in the boondocks, so I have muddy water runnin' through my vains too.
