ERIC CHURCH


Homeboy Lyrics

You were too bad for a little square town
With your hip hop hat and your pants on the ground
Heard you cussed out mama, pushed daddy around
You tore off in his car

Here you are runnin' these dirty old streets
Tattoo on your neck, fake gold on your teeth
Got the hood here snowed but you can't fool me
We both know who you are

Homeboy, you're gonna wish one day
You were sittin' on the gate of a truck by the lake
With your high school flame on one side
Ice cold beer on the other

Ain't no shame in a blue collar forty
Little house, little kids, little small town story
If you don't ever do anything else for me
Just do this for me, brother, come on home, boy

I was haulin' this hay to Uncle Joe's farm
Thought of us barefoot kids in the yard
Man, it seems we were just catchin' snakes in the barn
Now you're caught up in this mess

I can use a little help unloadin' these bales
I can keep ya pretty busy with a hammer and a nail
Ain't a glamorous life but it'll keep you outta jail
Not worry us all to death

Homeboy, you're gonna wish one day
You were sittin' on the gate of a truck by the lake
With your high school flame on one side
Ice cold beer on the other

Ain't no shame in a blue collar forty
Little house, little kids, little small town story
If you don't ever do anything else for me
Just do this for me, brother, come on home, boy
Come on home, boy

You can't hold back the hands of time
Mama's goin' gray and so is daddy's mind
I wish you'd come on back and make it alright
Before they're called home, boy

Homeboy
Come on home, boy
Homeboy
Come on home, boy

Deep in the heart country song with so much meaning. Love all of Eric Church's songs, they have lots of meaning and relate to everyday life. A true meaning of life and family.

This song reminds me of my brothers. He was recently released from jail and finally came home to make amends with our dad. He is doing good for himself now with his wife and kid.

I recently had to move away from all of my family and this song means the most to me. He doesn't want you to pretend to be anyone you aren't. always be you and stay to where you are wanted most.

It is not racist and not all the hood's are black, there are plenty of them of every race, it has nothing to do with race, it has to do with running off and leaving your roots behind.

I agree Scotty! Jason Aldean's new CD is mostly songs that Brantley Gilbert has written...and now Brantley is finally getting recognized a little with his own new CD...HOMEBOY is my fav song now!

Eric Church is a great artist. I love this song and its very true. Don't be shamed of who you are just don't pretend to someone your not.

Well I know some see this song as racist, but I don't. I think Church is commenting on how many rural white youth have been lost to the streets with Black baby daddies and pretend homies.

Actually Donald I listen to rap all the time and love working on my farm. It's wrong to sterotype people!
