Atkins, Rodney - Thank God For You Lyrics

Burned tire marks, hometown street
Red Trans Am, bad boy streak
Head held high, little too proud
Turned 18, got the hell out
I was ready to show 'em all a thing or two
Thank God for you

Jack on the rocks, Skynyrd bar band
College dropout, no kinda plan
Holes in my boots, one pair of jeans
American girls, Mexican weed
Sure 'nough bound for nowhere
That's the truth
Thank God for you

I thank God there's angels for young wild rebels
Girls who can dance you away from the devil
And make my world spin 'round the way you do
I thank God for the days on the front porch swinging
Holding your hand, the whole time thinking how lucky I am
Thank God for you
(Woahh, woahhh)

Pawn shop guitar turned up loud
Jar full of tips, beer drinking crowd
Feel right at home up on the stage
Songs about you, hell that I raised
I still got a wild hair or two
Thank God for you

I thank God there's angels for young wild rebels
Girls who can dance you away from the devil
Make my world spin 'round the way you do
I thank God for the days just a front porch swinging
Holding your hand, the whole time thinking how lucky I am
Thank God for you
(Woahh, woahhh)
(Woahh, woahhh)

I thank God there's angels for young wild rebels
Girls who can dance you away from the devil
Make my world spin 'round the way you do
I thank God for the days just a front porch swinging
Holding your hand, the whole time thinking how lucky I am
Thank God for you

  17. LyzardKing 503

    The verse is just, you know, I need you now by Lady Antebellum. I’m not saying having the same chord progression is heresy, but it seems a little, inspired

    William Uskoski

    Who gives a crap

  18. Bram Brudnicki

    That riff is a new order rip off

  19. 54raceman

    Glad to see he went back to country instead of the crap he’s been doing

  30. Melissa Kerns

    This song is so awesome

  31. Melissa Kerns

    Your son is so grown up I think it's cool u had him play the part of younger u as a teenager

  32. B G

    Isn't this the guy that tried to kill his wife then only had to go to anger management ordered by the court


    He was arrested for trying to suffocate his wife at the time, Tammy with a pillow. He attended anger management and alcohol counseling. He was never
    convicted, and after a year of staying out of trouble, all was stricken from his record. Whether or not he actually did it is a matter of his word against hers.

    B G

    @Superdave3556 He actually admitted it bro lmao


    Oh really? And just where did you get your information? Wikipedia and every archived news article I read about it says he denied trying to kill her. He
    admitted to having too much to drink and having a heated argument with her, that's all.

    RailFan Connor611

    No, Tammy said that. It was false.

  33. Desiree Spalek

    I love it

  34. Steven Youngblood

    The music sounds a lot like The First Time by Lifehouse the only difference is the lyrics good to see Rodney Atkins putting out a new video & song

  35. Mallarie Lowe

    So glad to see you back at it!

  36. B Fowler

    My son's nick name was Drew Bear (back in the day), he had a Scooby Doo (night light)! He's 20 now, and I went through hell, but....,
    Hey buddy, THANK GOD FOR YOU!!!

  37. Людмила Фартушняк

    What the hell? Nowhere on the album does it say that Cover Me Up and Thank God For You are cover songs, pretty lame move by Rodney. Are the others originals?

    RailFan Connor611

    @Jay Rogers Rodney just had to much to drink that day, And had an argument. Tammy made up a lie. Even Eli said he didnt throw her trying to kill her.

    Love it!!!

  97. Betty

    My husband has told me that for many years. He was a bit older than 18 and not a country boy, but the whole song struck such a chord with me. Brought tears actually, because you put the heavy metal boy's sentiment into this country girl's music. Thank you!

    Many of your songs echo things I've experienced. "When You're Going Thru Hell" was the first song of yours I heard and it came out when I felt I was at work. That was the first album I had bought in a long time. You, somehow, have your finger on the pulse of many of us.

  98. Tayla Main

    Love ittt. You are unbelievably amazing like always
