Lyrics

Grandaddy worked for the steel mill/That brought the boom into river town/Fed nine mouths with blue collar hands/Earned his keep by the sweat of his brow

Home was the foothills of Appalachia/Where country's more than music, it's the way of life/And same as the bluegrass growin' in the holler/And the moonshine

Grandaddy he was homegrown/Proud, flag-wavin' patriot son/This heartland's backbone/Homegrown/Perseverin', God-fearin', America's own

Daddy joined up no one forced his hand/Shipped out to fight in Vietnam/Came back a Purpe Heart a forever changed man. But he still loves Uncle Sam

My daddy he's homegrown/Proud, flag-wavin' patriot son/This heartland's backbone/Homegrown/Perseverin', God-fearin', America's own

Lord, let me live a simple life/I pray for fertile fields and open skies/And to lay my head down every night still free/Oh Lord keep me

Homegrown/Proud, flag-wavin' patriot/This heartland's backbone/Homegrown/Perseverin', God-fearin', America's own
